This is the official discussion area / mailing-list substitute for Pollen, a book-publishing system written in Racket.

Questions, suggestions, announcements welcome. Your host: Matthew Butterick.

This supersedes the pollenpub Google Group that was used from June 2015 – August 2019.

To read

No login necessary. All activity happens under the Issues tab.

To post

You need a GitHub account (free; email address needed). Then post a new issue.

What kinds of topics can be posted here?

Anything pertaining to using Pollen — questions, suggestions, feature requests, etc. (Don’t feel constrained by the fact that they are all known as “Issues”.)

After I post a question, when should I use the “close issue” button?

If you got a satisfactory answer, sure — hit the “close issue” button, and then others will know that no further reply is needed. BTW closing an issue doesn’t delete it or prevent further discussion post-closure. The issue can also be reopened if you change your mind.

Can I search issues?

Yes. Use the search box in the top nav bar, which will search this repository (including all the issues).

To receive email notification of responses

If you start a new issue or post a response, you’ll automatically get email notification of subsequent messages posted to that thread.

To receive email notification of new issues as they are created

That is, in the classic mailing-list style. At the top of the screen, use the “Watch” button to change your status to “Watching”.

Does this replace the Pollen source repository?

No. That remains at

Should I post Pollen bugs here or there?

Probably over there, though I’m not going to be finicky about it.

Why not consolidate all the issues over there?

I prefer to restrict the issues in the Pollen source repository to coding-related tasks.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
