Mailing list, what are they and how they work
The official communication channels for Apache projects are their mailing lists, and Apache Beam has two main lists: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. The topics for each of them can be seen in the section above.
Subscribe and Unsubscribe:
Prior to sending emails to these lists, you need to subscribe. To subscribe, send a blank email to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org depending on the list you want to write to.
After you subscribe, you’ll receive all emails going to this mailing list. If you no longer wish to receive emails from these lists, you need to send another blank email to either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Useful Tips for Sending Emails
Tip 1: Use tags in your subject line. A tag is a word within a pair of brackets  that indicate the type of message you’re sending. For example: [Bug] or [Proposal] or [Question] or [Idea]. Tags help folks navigate emails easier.
Tip 2: If you’re asking a troubleshooting question, provide as much information as possible to help others replicate your issue or find possible solutions.
