-	Apache Commons uses shared mailing lists for all of its components. 
-	There is only one developer list, and one user list, so it is important to identify the
component name
-	in the Subject line.
-	This ensures that readers can quickly determine if the message is of interest.
-	The convention adopted by Commons is to start the Subject: line with [component], for example:
+	Apache Commons uses shared mailing lists for all of its
+	<a href="http://commons.apache.org/components.html" class="externalLink">components</a>.
+    To make it easier for people to only read messages related to components they are interested
in,
+	the convention adopted by Commons is to start the Subject: line with [component], for example:
 	<ul>
 	<li>[EMAIL] Problem with mimemessage</li>

components.

+    Commons developers are subscribed to the list, and will do their best to

+    Note: please don't send patches or attachments to any of the mailing lists.
