Using Sun Technology at Sheffield Sun@Sheffield

Sheffield@Sun Community

Rather than merely promoting Sun technology, our aim is to form a community within the University in the same tradition as the open source development model advocated by Sun's existing Free and Open Source projects.

To get involved, your first step should be to join the FOSS mailing list. This can be achieved as follows:

  1. Create a new e-mail.
  2. In the 'To:' field, enter 'majordomo@dcs.shef.ac.uk' (without quotes).
  3. In the body of the e-mail, type 'subscribe foss' (again without quotes).
  4. Send the mail. You should get a response fairly quickly, saying you are now subscribed.
