Red Hat Global Support Services and public mailing lists

Updated -


Red Hat public mailing lists provide an meaningful way for Red Hat product teams to communicate with customers and the general public. The benefits include immediate notifications of release announcements, as well as the ability to collect input regarding important road map decisions. However, requests for technical assistance are generally not handled on these lists and are best routed through Red Hat's support organization. (
