25    
26     <p>
27     The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
28 neysx 1.57 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by
29     <uri link="http://mlmmj.mmj.dk">mlmmj</uri> and
30 neysx 1.44 provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to
31     comply with modern mailing list manager standards and conventions.
32     </p>
33    
34     <p>
35 neysx 1.57 One interacts with <c>mlmmj</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
36 neysx 1.44 empty email to:
37     </p>
38    
39 klieber 1.67 <p><c>listname+subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
40 neysx 1.44
41     <note>
42     Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe to.
43     </note>
44    
45     <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
46     <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
47     <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
48 lcars 1.68 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
49 neysx 1.44
50     <p>
51     All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
52     a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
53     each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and
54     unsubscribe from mailing lists respectively:
55     </p>
56    
57     <p>
58 klieber 1.67 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c><br/>
59     <c>listname+unsubscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
60 neysx 1.57 </p>
61    
62     <p>
63 klieber 1.67 Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
64 lcars 1.68 it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
65 klieber 1.67 These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
66     </p>
67    
68     <p>
69     <c>listname+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c><br/>
70     <c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
71     </p>
72     <p>
73 neysx 1.57 You can learn more about the capabilities of mlmmj by sending an empty mail to the
74     following address:
75     </p>
76    
77     <p>

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

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

501     <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
502     this?</title>
503     <body>
504    
505     <p>
506     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
507     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
508     following two addresses:
509     </p>
510    
511 lcars 1.68 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
512     <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>

519     <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
520     <body>
521    
522     <p>
523     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
524     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
525     </p>
526    
527     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
528 swift 1.38 :0:
529 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
530     Mail/listname
531 neysx 1.44 </pre>
532    
533     <p>
534     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
535     manager emails.
