Google Groups mailing list

Ansible normally appears monthly, on or near the first day of the month and is posted to the list as soon as possible after the printed edition has been produced. This is not a discussion list. Expect only one message per month, consisting of the plain-text content of the new Ansible. Sometimes, though very rarely these days, there may be a Christmas extra or a genuinely urgent correction to the current issue.

There is now an alternative non-Google list: see below.

Each mailing consists of the full contents of the new Ansible, sent as plain text. To subscribe, send email to – the actual message content doesn't matter.

Click here to do it now.

You may be asked to reply to an automatic Google Groups email to confirm your address. Or (depending on Google's whim) you may just be welcomed to the list.

Please remember to send an "unsubscribe" message from the same e-mail address if you no longer want to receive Ansible by this route, or before switching to another delivery address. The unsubscribe address is

You can also read new issues at the Google Groups website, although they look much nicer at Ansible's own site:

In either case it's possible to change your subscription details at this website, if you have a free Google account or don't mind signing up for one. You don't need a Google account to subscribe or unsubscribe by email as above. For those who have trouble with Google Groups or regard Google as the Great Satan of data mining, there's an alternative option below.

Alternative Mailing List

Warning: this email list operates from the Ansible web hosting service at 1&1. Several ISPs dislike the 1&1 mail servers and will reject emailed issues of Ansible, either consistently or erratically according to the vagaries of over-sensitive spam listing services. If you use one of these touchy ISPs you are more likely to get reliable service with the Google Groups list above, unless you are able to whitelist the email address as below.

With the form below you can subscribe to, or unsubscribe from, the alternative mailing list hosted at (list [at] ansible [dot] uk). Mailings are monthly and consist of plain text as described above. You will be asked to confirm your subscription by clicking on a link in an automatically generated email.
