43 <p>
44 The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
45 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by <uri
46 link="http://mlmmj.mmj.dk">mlmmj</uri> and provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers
47 and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to comply with modern mailing list
48 manager standards and conventions.
49 </p>
50
51 <p>
52 One interacts with <c>mlmmj</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
53 empty email to:
54 </p>
55
56 <p>
57 <c>listname+subscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c>
58 </p>
59
60 <note>
61 Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe
62 to, e.g.: <c>gentoo-user+subscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c> to subscribe to the
63 <c>gentoo-user</c> mailing list.
64 </note>
65
66 <p>
67 Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:
68 </p>
69
70 <p>
71 <c>listname@lists.gentoo.org</c>
72 </p>
73
74 <p>
75 To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:
76 </p>
77
78 <p>
79 <c>listname+unsubscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c>
80 </p>
81
82 <p>
83 All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
84 a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
85 each post. If you are subscribed to the digest variant and wish to be
86 unsubscribed, you must specifically unsubscribe from the digest variant. Using
87 the email address that you wish to (un)subscribe, send an empty email to the
88 following addresses to subscribe and unsubscribe from mailing lists
89 respectively:
90 </p>
91
92 <p>
93 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
94 <c>listname+unsubscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c>
95 </p>
96
97 <p>
98 Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
99 it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
100 These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
101 </p>
102
103 <p>
104 <c>listname+subscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
105 <c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c>
106 </p>
107
108 <p>
109 You can learn more about the capabilities of mlmmj by sending an empty mail to
110 the following address:
111 </p>
112
113 <p>
114 <c>listname+help@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
115 </p>

118 You can also learn more about the Gentoo mailing list system, including
119 etiquette and acceptable behavior, by reading the short Gentoo <uri

606 <b>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
607 the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</b>
608 </p>
609
610 <p>
611 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
612 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports "nomail"
613 subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses that can be
614 used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works. Let's
615 say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>, but
616 you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
617 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
618 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c> You should then be allowed
619 to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home and work email addresses.
620 </p>
621
622 <p>
623 In line with the original spam reduction goal, if you post to the list from a
624 non-subscribed address, your mail will be delivered to <path>/dev/null</path>.
625 You will <b>not</b> receive any bounce message from our servers. This prevents
626 spammers from forging your address to get a bounce delivered to you.
627 </p>
628
629 <p>
630 <b>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
631 this?</b>
632 </p>
633
634 <p>
635 Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
636 list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
637 following two addresses:
638 </p>
639
640 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
641 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c>
642 </p>
643
644 <p>
645 <b>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</b>
646 </p>
647
648 <p>
649 To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
650 <c>procmail</c> recipe:
651 </p>
652
653 <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
654 :0:
655 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
656 Mail/listname
657 </pre>
658
659 <p>
660 This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
661 manager emails.
662 </p>
663
664 <p>
665 <b>Miscellaneous list policies.</b>
666 </p>
667
668 <p>
669 HTML email is discouraged, but not forbidden (there are some MUA, specifically
670 web-based that make it very hard to disable HTML entirely). Beware that some
671 users may have their recieving side configured to hide HTML entirely, so it
672 might look like you are ignored, especially if you sent HTML-only email. In
673 order of preference, you should endeavour to send: text/plain, multipart with
674 text/plain before text/html, text/html. MIME is acceptable and widely used.
675 </p>
676
677 <p>
678 Please do not send any vacation or out of office messages to the list. In the
679 interests of reducing list spam, if you set any auto-responding message that
680 goes to the lists, we will unsubscribe your account from ALL lists. Any
681 previously subscribed addresses that send mail server messages to the lists will
682 also be removed.
683 </p>
684
685 <p>
686 Do not cross-post when sending messages to a list! Sending the same message to
687 more than one list at a time leads to fragmentation of the thread when some
688 people reply on one list, and some on another list. There's no guarantee that
689 the recipients of your message are on both lists. Choose just one list when
690 sending a message.
691 </p>
692
693 <note>
694 For general email list etiquette, <uri
695 link="http://www.dtcc.edu/cs/rfc1855.html">these guidelines</uri> are an
696 excellent primer.
