21     <p>
22     The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
23 neysx 1.57 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by
24     <uri link="http://mlmmj.mmj.dk">mlmmj</uri> and
25 neysx 1.44 provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to
26     comply with modern mailing list manager standards and conventions.
27     </p>
28    
29     <p>
30 neysx 1.57 One interacts with <c>mlmmj</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
31 neysx 1.44 empty email to:
32     </p>
33    
34 klieber 1.67 <p><c>listname+subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
35 neysx 1.44
36     <note>
37     Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe to.
38     </note>
39    
40     <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
41     <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
42     <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
43 lcars 1.68 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
44 neysx 1.44
45     <p>
46     All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
47     a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
48     each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and
49     unsubscribe from mailing lists respectively:
50     </p>
51    
52     <p>
53 klieber 1.67 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c><br/>
54     <c>listname+unsubscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
55 neysx 1.57 </p>
56    
57     <p>
58 klieber 1.67 Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
59 lcars 1.68 it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
60 klieber 1.67 These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
61     </p>
62    
63     <p>
64     <c>listname+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c><br/>
65     <c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
66     </p>
67     <p>
68 neysx 1.57 You can learn more about the capabilities of mlmmj by sending an empty mail to the
69     following address:

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

467     <p>
468     To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
469 neysx 1.57 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
470     "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
471     that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
472 neysx 1.44 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
473     but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
474 neysx 1.57 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
475 lcars 1.68 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
476 neysx 1.44 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
477     and work email addresses.

489     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
490     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
491     following two addresses:
492     </p>
493    
494 lcars 1.68 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
495     <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>

503     <body>
504    
505     <p>
506     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
507     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
508     </p>
509    
510     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
511 swift 1.38 :0:
512 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
513     Mail/listname
514 neysx 1.44 </pre>
515    
516     <p>
517     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
518     manager emails.
