Impossible to join the notify list on wordpress.org
|Reported by:||gregh||Owned by:||matt|
It is impossible to join the notify list linked to from almost every page on wordpress.org.
Go to http://wordpress.org/list/ and enter a username (optional) and email (compulsory).
Receive a confirmation email.
No email received ever, regardless of whether you specify a username or not. No release announcements received ever.
Subscribe to RSS feed feed://wordpress.org/development/feed/ instead.
This problem with the notify list has existed for months (years even?). I have tried various times over to suscribe the list and have never once received a confirmation email from wordpress.org. I have never received a release announcement. Given that WordPress is a publicly-deployed piece of software with a track record of security holes, it is very important to receive notification of new releases. I am hoping that this can be fixed soon as it is not very professional and it reflects badly on WordPress and the WordPress website.
