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 You will then recieve a subscription confirmation request (double opt-in) from
68 the list manager, that you must reply to if you wish to subscribe.
69 </p>
70
71 <p>
72 Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:
73 </p>
74
75 <p>
76 <c>listname@lists.gentoo.org</c>
77 </p>
78
79 <p>
80 To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:
81 </p>
82
83 <p>
84 <c>listname+unsubscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c>
85 </p>
86
87 <note>
88 You must use the identical address that you subscribed with to unsubscribe
89 successfully. If your email address is now forwarded/rewritten beyond your
90 control, please contact the list owner via
91 <c>listname+owner@lists.gentoo.org</c> with a request for manual removal.
92 </note>
93
94 <p>
95 You will then recieve a unsubscription confirmation request (double opt-in)
96 from the list manager, that you must reply to if you wish to be unsubscribed.
97 </p>
98
99 <p>
100 All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
101 a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
102 each post. If you are subscribed to the digest variant and wish to be
103 unsubscribed, you must specifically unsubscribe from the digest variant. Using
104 the email address that you wish to (un)subscribe, send an empty email to the
105 following addresses to subscribe and unsubscribe from mailing lists
106 respectively:
107 </p>
108
109 <p>
110 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
111 <c>listname+unsubscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c>
112 </p>
113
114 <p>
115 Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
116 it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
117 These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
118 </p>
119
120 <p>
121 <c>listname+subscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
122 <c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c>
123 </p>
124
125 <p>
126 You can learn more about the capabilities of mlmmj by sending an empty mail to
127 the following address:
128 </p>
129
130 <p>
131 <c>listname+help@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>

716 <p>
717 <b>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
718 the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</b>
719 </p>
720
721 <p>
722 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
723 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports "nomail"
724 subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses that can be
725 used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works. Let's
726 say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>, but
727 you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
728 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
729 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c> You should then be allowed
730 to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home and work email addresses.
731 </p>
732
733 <p>
734 In line with the original spam reduction goal, if you post to the list from a
735 non-subscribed address, your mail will be delivered to <path>/dev/null</path>.
736 You will <b>not</b> receive any bounce message from our servers. This prevents
737 spammers from forging your address to get a bounce delivered to you.
738 </p>
739
740 <p>
741 <b>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
742 this?</b>
743 </p>
744
745 <p>
746 Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
747 list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
748 following two addresses:
749 </p>
750
751 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
752 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c>
753 </p>
754
755 <p>
756 <b>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</b>
757 </p>
758
759 <p>
760 To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
761 <c>procmail</c> recipe:
762 </p>
763
764 <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
765 :0:
766 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
767 Mail/listname
768 </pre>
769
770 <p>
771 This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
772 manager emails.
773 </p>
774
775 <p>
776 <b>Miscellaneous list policies.</b>
777 </p>
778
779 <p>
780 HTML email is discouraged, but not forbidden (there are some MUA, specifically
781 web-based that make it very hard to disable HTML entirely). Beware that some
782 users may have their recieving side configured to hide HTML entirely, so it
783 might look like you are ignored, especially if you sent HTML-only email. In
784 order of preference, you should endeavour to send: text/plain, multipart with
785 text/plain before text/html, text/html. MIME is acceptable and widely used.
786 </p>
787
788 <p>
789 Please do not send any vacation or out of office messages to the list. In the
790 interests of reducing list spam, if you set any auto-responding message that
791 goes to the lists, we will unsubscribe your account from ALL lists. Any
792 previously subscribed addresses that send mail server messages to the lists will
793 also be removed.
794 </p>
795
796 <p>
797 Do not cross-post when sending messages to a list! Sending the same message to
798 more than one list at a time leads to fragmentation of the thread when some
799 people reply on one list, and some on another list. There's no guarantee that
800 the recipients of your message are on both lists. Choose just one list when
801 sending a message.
802 </p>
803
804 <note>
805 For general email list etiquette, <uri
806 link="http://www.dtcc.edu/cs/rfc1855.html">these guidelines</uri> are an
807 excellent primer.

826 <p>
827 The mailing lists are public forums, except for lists explicitly otherwise.
828 For lists explicitly marked private or restricted, all of the following except
829 web archives are applicable.
830 </p>
831
832 <p>
833 All emails sent to the lists are distributed both to the list subscribers and
834 copied to the <uri link="http://archives.gentoo.org/">Gentoo archives</uri>,
835 for people to browse or search without the need to be subscribed.
836 </p>
837
838 <p>
839 There may be other places where lists are distributed — please make sure you
840 never send any confidential or unlicensed material to the lists. This includes
841 things like e-mail addresses. Of particular note is the fact that spammers,
842 viruses, worms etc have been known to abuse e-mail addresses posted to our
843 mailing lists.
844 </p>
845
846 <p>
847 Gentoo maintains the mailing lists in good faith and will take steps to curb
848 all noticed abuse and maintain uninterrupted normal service. At the same time,
849 Gentoo is not responsible for all mailing list posts or anything that may
850 happen in relation to them.
851 </p>
852
853 <p>
854 These policies are based on the <uri
855 link="http://www.debian.org/MailingLists/disclaimer"> policies of the Debian
856 mailing lists</uri>.
