<h2 id="faq">Frequently Asked Questions</h2>
<dl>
  <dt>How do I create recurring appointments?</dt>
  <dd>
    Create a normal appointment, then use the <tt>repeat</tt> key binding
    (defaults to <tt>r</tt>) to convert it into a recurring item.
  </dd>
  <dt>Can I synchronize <tt>calcurse</tt> with other calendar software?</dt>
  <dd>
    <tt>calcurse</tt> support iCal imports and exports. Any application
    supporting these formats can be synchronized by using a simple script.
    For experimental CalDAV support, check out the <tt>master</tt> branch of
    our <a href="/devel/#source">Git repository</a>.
  </dd>
  <dt>Is it possible to get rid of the messages confirming loaded/saved data?</dt>
  <dd>
    Yes, disable the <tt>general.systemdialogs</tt> setting from within the
    configuration menu.
  </dd>

<h2 id="bugs">Reporting Bugs</h2>
<p>
  Before reporting bugs, please search the
  <a href="http://bugs.calcurse.org">bug tracker</a> to avoid duplicate
  reports. Duplicates are counter-productive and promptly closed. Please search
  both open reports, as well as recently closed bugs, since the defect you
  encountered might have already been fixed in the development branch.
</p>
<p>
  To open a bug, send a mail to the <tt>bugs</tt> mailing list. Check the
  <a href="#ml">Mailing Lists</a> section below for details on how to
  subscribe. Your bug report will be added to the bug tracker after
  confirmation/review. Do not forget to include the following information:
</p>
<ul>
  <li>The version of the calcurse release being used.</li>
  <li>Indicate whether or not the functionality worked before.</li>
  <li>
    Any error output. Also, try to obtain a stack trace if calcurse crashed.
  </li>
  <li>Information on how to reproduce the bug.</li>
</ul>
<p>
  Please follow up on bugs and give continued feedback if requested.
</p>

<h2 id="ml">Mailing Lists</h2>
<p>
  The mailing lists should be your first point of contact. Please be sure to
  read the relevant parts of the <a href="#doc">user manual</a> before asking
  questions.
</p>
<p>
  At the moment, there are four different lists:
</p>
<ul>
  <li>
    <tt>announce at calcurse dot org</tt> &ndash; release announcements
    (<a href="http://lists.calcurse.org/announce">archives</a>)
  </li>
  <li>
    <tt>misc at calcurse dot org</tt> &ndash; for calcurse users, development
    and general discussion
    (<a href="http://lists.calcurse.org/misc">archives</a>)
  </li>
  <li>
    <tt>bugs at calcurse dot org</tt> &ndash; for bug reports
    (<a href="http://lists.calcurse.org/bugs">archives</a>)
  </li>
  <li>
    <tt>i18n at calcurse dot org</tt> &ndash; for translators and translation
    bugs
    (<a href="http://lists.calcurse.org/i18n">archives</a>)
  </li>
</ul>
<p>
  To subscribe to one of the mailing lists, send an empty mail to one of the
  mailing list addresses, adding <tt>+subscribe</tt> to the local part
  (<tt>announce+subscribe</tt> instead of <tt>announce</tt>,
  <tt>misc+subscribe</tt> instead of <tt>misc</tt>, <tt>bugs+subscribe</tt>
  instead of <tt>bugs</tt>, <tt>i18n+subscribe</tt> instead of <tt>i18n</tt>).
  To unsubscribe, use the <tt>unsubscribe</tt> keyword, respectively.
</p>
<p>
  Note that we use <a href="http://www.openbsd.org/spamd/">spamd</a> with
  greylisting, so don't panic if your mails are delayed the first time you post
  to one of the lists.
</p>

<h2 id="devs">Developer Contact</h2>
<p>
  The <tt>calcurse</tt> dev team follows all mailing lists. If you still want
  to send a direct mail, submit it to <tt>info at calcurse dot org</tt> or to
  one of the author's private mail addresses:
</p>
<ul>
  <li>Frederic Culot <tt>&lt;calcurse at culot dot org&gt;</tt></li>
  <li>Lukas Fleischer <tt>&lt;lfleischer at calcurse dot org&gt;</tt></li>
</ul>
