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.

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

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

379     <section>
380     <title>Where do I set/store my mailing list password?</title>
381     <body>
382    
383     <p>
384     <c>ezmlm/idx</c> does not use passwords; instead, it uses auto-generated
385     cryptographic cookies for security.
386     </p>

392     <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
393     this?</title>
394     <body>
395    
396     <p>
397     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
398     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
399     following two addresses:
400     </p>
401    
402     <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
403     <c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c>

410     <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
411     <body>
412    
413     <p>
414     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
415     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
416     </p>
417    
418     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
419 swift 1.38 :0:
420 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
421     Mail/listname
422 neysx 1.44 </pre>
423    
424     <p>
425     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
426     manager emails.
