17     <section>
18     <body>
19    
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.

358     <p>
359     We used to host our own mail archives, but that got pretty boring fast. The
360     following sites host pretty decent archives of most of the mailing lists, so
361     please utilize them rather than asking for 'official' Gentoo mailing list
362 swift 1.54 archives. These are the 'official' ones :).<br/>

373     <title>Mailing List Mini-FAQ</title>
374     <section>
375     <title>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
376     the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</title>
377     <body>
378    
379     <p>
380     To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
381     official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>ezmlm/idx</c> supports a
382     concept known as "aliases," allowing you to register alternate email addresses
383     that can also be used to post to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
384     Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
385     but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
386     address. To do this, send a message (as <c>jim@home.com</c>) to
387     <c>gentoo-dev-allow-subscribe-james=work.com@gentoo.org</c> (note the <c>@</c>
388     becoming an <c>=</c>,) and then reply to the confirmation email you receive.
389     You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
390     and work email addresses.

396     <section>
397     <title>Where do I set/store my mailing list password?</title>
398     <body>
399    
400     <p>
401     <c>ezmlm/idx</c> does not use passwords; instead, it uses auto-generated
402     cryptographic cookies for security.

409     <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
410     this?</title>
411     <body>
412    
413     <p>
414     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
415     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
416     following two addresses:
417     </p>
418    
419     <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
420     <c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c>

427     <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
428     <body>
429    
430     <p>
431     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
432     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
433     </p>
434    
435     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
436 swift 1.38 :0:
437 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
438     Mail/listname
439 neysx 1.44 </pre>
440    
441     <p>
442     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
443     manager emails.
