26    
27     <p>
28     The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
29 neysx 1.57 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by
30     <uri link="http://mlmmj.mmj.dk">mlmmj</uri> and
31 neysx 1.44 provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to
32     comply with modern mailing list manager standards and conventions.
33     </p>
34    
35     <p>
36 neysx 1.57 One interacts with <c>mlmmj</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
37 neysx 1.44 empty email to:
38     </p>
39    
40 klieber 1.67 <p><c>listname+subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
41 neysx 1.44
42     <note>
43     Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe to.
44     </note>
45    
46     <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
47     <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
48     <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
49 lcars 1.68 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
50 neysx 1.44
51     <p>
52     All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
53     a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
54     each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and
55     unsubscribe from mailing lists respectively:
56     </p>
57    
58     <p>
59 klieber 1.67 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c><br/>
60     <c>listname+unsubscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
61 neysx 1.57 </p>
62    
63     <p>
64 klieber 1.67 Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
65 lcars 1.68 it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
66 klieber 1.67 These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
67     </p>
68    
69     <p>
70     <c>listname+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c><br/>
71     <c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
72     </p>
73     <p>
74 neysx 1.57 You can learn more about the capabilities of mlmmj by sending an empty mail to the
75     following address:
76     </p>
77    
78     <p>
79 lcars 1.68 <c>listname+help@gentoo.org</c><br/>

457     We used to host our own mail archives, but that got pretty boring fast. The

459     please utilize them rather than asking for 'official' Gentoo mailing list
460 swift 1.54 archives. These are the 'official' ones :).<br/>

473     <title>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
474     the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</title>
475     <body>
476    
477     <p>
478     To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
479 neysx 1.57 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
480     "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
481     that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
482 neysx 1.44 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
483     but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
484 neysx 1.57 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
485 lcars 1.68 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
486 neysx 1.44 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
487     and work email addresses.

494     <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
495     this?</title>
496     <body>
497    
498     <p>
499     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
500     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
501     following two addresses:
502     </p>
503    
504 lcars 1.68 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
505     <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
506 neysx 1.44 </p>

512     <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
513     <body>
514    
515     <p>
516     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
517     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
518     </p>
519    
520     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
521 swift 1.38 :0:
522 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
523     Mail/listname
524 neysx 1.44 </pre>
525    
526     <p>
527     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
528     manager emails.
