20     <p>
21     The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
22     a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by a
23     customized version of <uri link="http://ezmlm.org">ezmlm/idx</uri> that
24     provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to
25     comply with modern mailing list manager standards and conventions.
26     </p>
27    
28     <p>
29     One interacts with <c>ezmlm/idx</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
30     empty email to:
31     </p>
32    
33     <p><c>listname-subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
34    
35     <note>
36     Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe to.
37     </note>
38    
39     <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
40     <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
41     <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
42     <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
43    
44     <p>
45     All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
46     a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
47     each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and
48     unsubscribe from mailing lists respectively:
49     </p>
50    
51     <p>
52     <c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
53     <c>listname-digest-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c>
54     </p>
55    
56     <p>
57     You can learn more about the capabilities of ezmlm/idx by reading the <uri
58     link="http://ezmlm.org/ezman-0.32/ezman1.html">Ezmlm/idx User's Manual</uri>.
59     You can also learn more about the Gentoo mailing list system by reading the
60     short Gentoo mailing
61     list FAQ that appears later in this document.

326     <p>
327     We used to host our own mail archives, but that got pretty boring fast. The
328     following sites host pretty decent archives of most of the mailing lists, so
329     please utilize them rather than asking for 'official' Gentoo mailing list
330     archives. These are the 'official' ones :).<br/> <uri

340     <title>Mailing List Mini-FAQ</title>
341     <section>
342     <title>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
343     the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</title>
344     <body>
345    
346     <p>
347     To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
348     official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>ezmlm/idx</c> supports a
349     concept known as "aliases," allowing you to register alternate email addresses
350     that can also be used to post to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
351     Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
352     but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
353     address. To do this, send a message (as <c>jim@home.com</c>) to
354     <c>gentoo-dev-allow-subscribe-james=work.com@gentoo.org</c> (note the <c>@</c>
355     becoming an <c>=</c>,) and then reply to the confirmation email you receive.
356     You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
357     and work email addresses.
358     </p>

361     </section>
362    
363     <section>
364     <title>Where do I set/store my mailing list password?</title>
365     <body>
366    
367     <p>
368     <c>ezmlm/idx</c> does not use passwords; instead, it uses auto-generated
369     cryptographic cookies for security.
370     </p>
371    
372     </body>
373     </section>
374    
375     <section>
376     <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
377     this?</title>
378     <body>
379    
380     <p>
381     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
382     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
383     following two addresses:
384     </p>
385    
386     <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
387     <c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c>

394     <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
395     <body>
396    
397     <p>
398     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
399     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
400     </p>
401    
402     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
403 swift 1.38 :0:
404 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
405     Mail/listname
406 neysx 1.44 </pre>
407    
408     <p>
409     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
410     manager emails.
