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>

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>

729 curtis119 1.83 <b>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
730     the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</b>
731     </p>
732    
733     <p>
734 neysx 1.44 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
735 nightmorph 1.118 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports "nomail"
736     subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses that can be
737     used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works. Let's
738     say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>, but
739     you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
740 neysx 1.57 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
741 nightmorph 1.118 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c> You should then be allowed
742     to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home and work email addresses.
743 neysx 1.44 </p>
744    
745 curtis119 1.83 <p>
746 nightmorph 1.118 In line with the original spam reduction goal, if you post to the list from a
747     non-subscribed address, your mail will be delivered to <path>/dev/null</path>.
748     You will <b>not</b> receive any bounce message from our servers. This prevents
749     spammers from forging your address to get a bounce delivered to you.

757     <p>
758     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
759     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
760     following two addresses:
761     </p>
762

769     </p>
770 neysx 1.44
771     <p>
772     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
773     <c>procmail</c> recipe:

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

817 nightmorph 1.116 For general email list etiquette, <uri
