features, and other information to make your work or play with
PostgreSQL more productive.
The mailing lists are a good place to have your questions
answered, to share experiences with other users, and to contact
the developers. Consult the User's

PostgreSQL is an open-source effort.
As such, it depends on the user community for ongoing support.
As you begin to use PostgreSQL, you
will rely on others for help, either through the documentation
or through the mailing lists. Consider contributing your
knowledge back. If you learn something which is not in the
documentation, write it up and contribute it. If you add
features to the code, contribute them.
Even those without a lot of experience can provide corrections
and minor changes in the documentation, and that is a good way
to start. The <firstname.lastname@example.org> mailing
list is the place to get going.
