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>

119 etiquette and acceptable behavior, by reading the short Gentoo <uri

700 <b>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
701 the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</b>
702 </p>
703
704 <p>
705 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
706 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports "nomail"
707 subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses that can be
708 used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works. Let's
709 say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>, but
710 you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
711 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
712 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c> You should then be allowed
713 to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home and work email addresses.
714 </p>
715
716 <p>
717 In line with the original spam reduction goal, if you post to the list from a
718 non-subscribed address, your mail will be delivered to <path>/dev/null</path>.
719 You will <b>not</b> receive any bounce message from our servers. This prevents
720 spammers from forging your address to get a bounce delivered to you.
721 </p>
722
723 <p>
724 <b>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
725 this?</b>
726 </p>
727
728 <p>
729 Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
730 list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
731 following two addresses:
732 </p>
733
734 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
735 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c>
736 </p>
737
738 <p>
739 <b>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</b>
740 </p>
741
742 <p>
743 To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
744 <c>procmail</c> recipe:
745 </p>
746
747 <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
748 :0:
749 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
750 Mail/listname
751 </pre>
752
753 <p>
754 This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
755 manager emails.
756 </p>
757
758 <p>
759 <b>Miscellaneous list policies.</b>
760 </p>
761
762 <p>
763 HTML email is discouraged, but not forbidden (there are some MUA, specifically
764 web-based that make it very hard to disable HTML entirely). Beware that some
765 users may have their recieving side configured to hide HTML entirely, so it
766 might look like you are ignored, especially if you sent HTML-only email. In
767 order of preference, you should endeavour to send: text/plain, multipart with
768 text/plain before text/html, text/html. MIME is acceptable and widely used.
769 </p>
770
771 <p>
772 Please do not send any vacation or out of office messages to the list. In the
773 interests of reducing list spam, if you set any auto-responding message that
774 goes to the lists, we will unsubscribe your account from ALL lists. Any
775 previously subscribed addresses that send mail server messages to the lists will
776 also be removed.
777 </p>
778
779 <p>
780 Do not cross-post when sending messages to a list! Sending the same message to
781 more than one list at a time leads to fragmentation of the thread when some
782 people reply on one list, and some on another list. There's no guarantee that
783 the recipients of your message are on both lists. Choose just one list when
784 sending a message.
785 </p>
786
787 <note>
788 For general email list etiquette, <uri
789 link="http://www.dtcc.edu/cs/rfc1855.html">these guidelines</uri> are an
790 excellent primer.
