17     <section>

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.

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

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

366    
367     <section>
368     <title>Where do I set/store my mailing list password?</title>
369     <body>
370    
371     <p>
372     <c>ezmlm/idx</c> does not use passwords; instead, it uses auto-generated
373     cryptographic cookies for security.
374     </p>
375    
376     </body>
377     </section>
378    
379     <section>
380     <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
381     this?</title>
382     <body>
383    
384     <p>
385     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
386     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
387     following two addresses:
388     </p>
389    
390     <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
391     <c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c>
392     </p>

397     <section>
398     <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
399     <body>
400    
401     <p>
402     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
403     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
404     </p>
405    
406     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
407 swift 1.38 :0:
408 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
409     Mail/listname
410 neysx 1.44 </pre>
411    
412     <p>
413     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
414     manager emails.
