Hi Edwin,

Sourceforge is where the codebase for KiCad USED to be hosted.

Yahoo is where the users mailing list IS hosted, and where the
developers mailing list USED to be hosted.

A while back, a decision was taken to move the codebase and developers
mailing list to Launchpad. KiCad developers also use Launchpad's other
facilities like bug tracking and reporting, etc. It is best to start
at KiCad's launchpad page and start poking around:

For speed, here's a direct link to the bug tracker for KiCad hosted on
Launchpad: https://bugs.launchpad.net/kicad

You can subscribe to the bug tracker so that you get reported of all
changes to KiCad related bugs.

Best Regards,
