- In May 2020, thanks to the friendly people at python.org, kwant-discuss was migrated to a Mailman 3 server that offers a much-improved web interface. The complete archives of the list were migrated as well. The `old address of the list <kwant-discuss@kwant-project.org>`_ remains usable: any messages are simply redirected to the new one.
The `Kwant development mailing list
<https://mailman-mail5.webfaction.com/listinfo/kwant-devel>`_ has been retired
in 2019. Please use the main list instead, or the other communication channels
listed below (chat and gitlab). The archives of kwant-devel remain searchable:
