The Freeciv Project has several email lists open to the general public; everyone is welcome to join.
- A low-volume mailing list for announcements of general interest, mainly new releases.
- Freeciv development.
- Freeciv localisation (translation).
There are not currently public mailing lists to follow commits to the source repository (freeciv-commits as was) or traffic on the bug tracker (as used to be on freeciv-dev); for now you'll have to sign up for email notifications on those platforms.
