Mailing Lists

There are currently two mailing lists available:

  • pingus-devel - A list for discussing development issues, like level creation or code changes, but might as well be used for user issues like how to solve levels and such

  • pingus-cvs - Read-only list to which all CVS commits get submitted, only intersting for developers in general

For information on how to subscribe to any of these lists have a look at:


For a quick help you can try the IRC server and the channel #pingus, you can sometimes find the project maintainer (nick: grumbel) there.
