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.

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

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

370    
371     <section>
372     <title>Where do I set/store my mailing list password?</title>
373     <body>
374    
375     <p>
376     <c>ezmlm/idx</c> does not use passwords; instead, it uses auto-generated
377     cryptographic cookies for security.
378     </p>
379    
380     </body>
381     </section>
382    
383     <section>
384     <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
385     this?</title>
386     <body>
387    
388     <p>
389     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
390     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
391     following two addresses:
392     </p>
393    
394     <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
395     <c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c>
396     </p>

402     <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
403     <body>
404    
405     <p>
406     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
407     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
408     </p>
409    
410     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
411 swift 1.38 :0:
412 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
413     Mail/listname
414 neysx 1.44 </pre>
415    
416     <p>
417     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
418     manager emails.
