43     <p>
44     The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
45 nightmorph 1.112 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by <uri
46     link="http://mlmmj.mmj.dk">mlmmj</uri> and provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers
47     and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to comply with modern mailing list
48     manager standards and conventions.
49 neysx 1.44 </p>
50    
51     <p>
52 neysx 1.57 One interacts with <c>mlmmj</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
53 neysx 1.44 empty email to:
54     </p>
55    
56 nightmorph 1.118 <p>
57     <c>listname+subscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c>
58     </p>
59 neysx 1.44
60     <note>
61 neysx 1.93 Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe
62 robbat2 1.108 to, e.g.: <c>gentoo-user+subscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c> to subscribe to the
63 neysx 1.93 <c>gentoo-user</c> mailing list.
64 neysx 1.44 </note>
65    
66 nightmorph 1.118 <p>
67 robbat2 1.122 You will then recieve a subscription confirmation request (double opt-in) from
68     the list manager, that you must reply to if you wish to subscribe.
69     </p>
70    
71     <p>
72 nightmorph 1.118 Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:
73     </p>
74    
75     <p>
76     <c>listname@lists.gentoo.org</c>
77     </p>
78    
79     <p>
80     To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:
81     </p>
82    
83     <p>
84     <c>listname+unsubscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c>
85     </p>
86 neysx 1.44
87 robbat2 1.122 <note>
88     You must use the identical address that you subscribed with to unsubscribe
89     successfully. If your email address is now forwarded/rewritten beyond your
90     control, please contact the list owner via
91     <c>listname+owner@lists.gentoo.org</c> with a request for manual removal.
92     </note>
93    
94     <p>
95     You will then recieve a unsubscription confirmation request (double opt-in)
96     from the list manager, that you must reply to if you wish to be unsubscribed.
97     </p>
98    
99 neysx 1.44 <p>
100     All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
101     a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
102 robbat2 1.100 each post. If you are subscribed to the digest variant and wish to be
103     unsubscribed, you must specifically unsubscribe from the digest variant. Using
104     the email address that you wish to (un)subscribe, send an empty email to the
105     following addresses to subscribe and unsubscribe from mailing lists
106     respectively:
107 neysx 1.44 </p>
108    
109     <p>
110 robbat2 1.108 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
111     <c>listname+unsubscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c>
112 neysx 1.57 </p>
113    
114     <p>
115 klieber 1.67 Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
116 lcars 1.68 it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
117 klieber 1.67 These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
118     </p>
119    
120     <p>
121 robbat2 1.108 <c>listname+subscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
122     <c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c>

717 curtis119 1.83 <b>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
718     the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</b>
719     </p>
720    
721     <p>
722 neysx 1.44 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
723 nightmorph 1.118 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports "nomail"
724     subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses that can be
725     used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works. Let's
726     say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>, but
727     you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
728 neysx 1.57 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
729 nightmorph 1.118 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c> You should then be allowed
730     to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home and work email addresses.
731 neysx 1.44 </p>
732    
733 curtis119 1.83 <p>
734 nightmorph 1.118 In line with the original spam reduction goal, if you post to the list from a
735     non-subscribed address, your mail will be delivered to <path>/dev/null</path>.
736     You will <b>not</b> receive any bounce message from our servers. This prevents
737     spammers from forging your address to get a bounce delivered to you.
738 robbat2 1.113 </p>
739    
740     <p>
741 curtis119 1.83 <b>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
742     this?</b>
743     </p>
744 neysx 1.44
745     <p>
746     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
747     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
748     following two addresses:
749     </p>
750    
751 robbat2 1.108 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
752     <c>listname+subscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c>

756     <b>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</b>
757     </p>
758 neysx 1.44
759     <p>
760     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
761     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
762     </p>
763    
764     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
765 swift 1.38 :0:
766 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
767     Mail/listname
768 neysx 1.44 </pre>
769    
770     <p>
771     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
772     manager emails.
773     </p>

775 robbat2 1.104 <p>
776 nightmorph 1.119 <b>Miscellaneous list policies.</b>
777 robbat2 1.104 </p>
778    
779 nightmorph 1.112 <p>
780     HTML email is discouraged, but not forbidden (there are some MUA, specifically
781     web-based that make it very hard to disable HTML entirely). Beware that some
782     users may have their recieving side configured to hide HTML entirely, so it
783     might look like you are ignored, especially if you sent HTML-only email. In
784     order of preference, you should endeavour to send: text/plain, multipart with
785     text/plain before text/html, text/html. MIME is acceptable and widely used.
786     </p>
787    
788     <p>
789     Please do not send any vacation or out of office messages to the list. In the
790     interests of reducing list spam, if you set any auto-responding message that
791     goes to the lists, we will unsubscribe your account from ALL lists. Any
792     previously subscribed addresses that send mail server messages to the lists will
793     also be removed.
794     </p>
795    
796 nightmorph 1.119 <p>
797     Do not cross-post when sending messages to a list! Sending the same message to
798     more than one list at a time leads to fragmentation of the thread when some
799     people reply on one list, and some on another list. There's no guarantee that
800     the recipients of your message are on both lists. Choose just one list when
801     sending a message.
802     </p>
803    
804 nightmorph 1.112 <note>
805 nightmorph 1.116 For general email list etiquette, <uri
806 nightmorph 1.112 link="http://www.dtcc.edu/cs/rfc1855.html">these guidelines</uri> are an
807     excellent primer.
