The Open Object Rexx Project utilizes SourceForge to house the ooRexx Project source repositories, mailing lists and other project features. Over time it has become apparent that the Developer and User mailing lists are better tools for carrying on discussions concerning ooRexx and that the Forums provided by SourceForge are cumbersome to use. The ooRexx user is most likely to get timely replies from one of the mailing lists.
Here is a list of some of the most useful facilities provided by SourceForge.
