11     <title>Gentoo Linux Mailing List Overview</title>
12     <section>
13     <body>
14    
15     <p>The Gentoo Linux free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering a variety of Gentoo Linux-related
16     subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by a customized version of <uri link="http://www.ezmlm.org">ezmlm/idx</uri> that provides
17     <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to comply with modern mailing list manager standards
18     and conventions.</p>
19    
20     <p>One interacts with <c>ezmlm/idx</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an empty email to:</p>
21     <p><c>listname-subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
22     <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
23     <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
24     <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
25     <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
26     <p>All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail a single email to you every couple of days,
27     rather than individual emails for each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and unsubscribe from
28     mailing lists respectively:</p>
29     <p><c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
30     <c>listname-digest-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
31     <p>You can learn more about the capabilities of ezmlm/idx by reading the <uri link="http://www.ezmlm.org/ezman-0.32/ezman1.html">Ezmlm/idx User's Manual</uri>. You can also learn more about the Gentoo Linux mailing list system by reading the short Gentoo Linux mailing
32     list FAQ that appears later in this document.</p>

149     <title>Gentoo Linux Mailing List Mini-FAQ</title>
150     <section>
151     <title>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</title>
152    
153     <body><p>To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately,
154     <c>ezmlm/idx</c> supports a concept known as "aliases," allowing you to register alternate email addresses that can also be used to
155     post to the list. Here's an example of how this works. Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
156     but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email address. To do this, send a message (as <c>jim@home.com</c>)
157     to <c>gentoo-dev-allow-subscribe-james=work.com@gentoo.org</c> (note the <c>@</c> becoming an <c>=</c>,) and then reply to the confirmation email you receive. You should then
158     be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home and work email addresses.
159     </p></body>
160     </section>
161    
162     <section>
163     <title>Where to I set/store my mailing list password?</title>
164     <body><p><c>ezmlm/idx</c> does not use passwords; instead, it uses auto-generated cryptographic cookies for security.
165     </p></body>
166     </section>
167    
168     <section>
169     <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do this?</title>
170     <body><p>Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by
171     sending empty emails to the following two addresses:</p>
172     <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
173     <c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c>
174     </p></body>
175     </section>
176    
177    
178     <section>
179     <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo Linux mailing list messages?</title>
180     <body><p>To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following <c>procmail</c> recipe:</p>
181     <pre>
182     :0
183     * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
184     Mail/listname
185     </pre>
186     <p>This identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list manager emails.</p>
