13 <title>Mailing List Overview</title>
14 <section>
15 <body>
16
17 <p>The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering a variety of Gentoo-related
18 subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by a customized version of <uri link="http://ezmlm.org">ezmlm/idx</uri> that provides
19 <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to comply with modern mailing list manager standards
20 and conventions.</p>
21
22 <p>One interacts with <c>ezmlm/idx</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an empty email to:</p>
23 <p><c>listname-subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
24 <note>Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe to</note>
25 <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
26 <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
27 <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
28 <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
29 <p>All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail a single email to you every couple of days,
30 rather than individual emails for each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and unsubscribe from
31 mailing lists respectively:</p>
32 <p><c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
33 <c>listname-digest-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
34 <p>You can learn more about the capabilities of ezmlm/idx by reading the <uri link="http://ezmlm.org/ezman-0.32/ezman1.html">Ezmlm/idx User's Manual</uri>. You can also learn more about the Gentoo mailing list system by reading the short Gentoo mailing
35 list FAQ that appears later in this document.</p>

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

279 <title>Mailing List Mini-FAQ</title>
280 <section>
281 <title>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</title>
282
283 <body><p>To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately,
284 <c>ezmlm/idx</c> supports a concept known as "aliases," allowing you to register alternate email addresses that can also be used to
285 post to the list. Here's an example of how this works. Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
286 but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email address. To do this, send a message (as <c>jim@home.com</c>)
287 to <c>gentoo-dev-allow-subscribe-james=work.com@gentoo.org</c> (note the <c>@</c> becoming an <c>=</c>,) and then reply to the confirmation email you receive. You should then
288 be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home and work email addresses.
289 </p></body>

291
292 <section>
293 <title>Where do I set/store my mailing list password?</title>
294 <body><p><c>ezmlm/idx</c> does not use passwords; instead, it uses auto-generated cryptographic cookies for security.
295 </p></body>
296 </section>
297
298 <section>
299 <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do this?</title>
300 <body><p>Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by
301 sending empty emails to the following two addresses:</p>
302 <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
303 <c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c>
304 </p></body>
305 </section>
306
307
308 <section>
309 <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
310 <body><p>To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following <c>procmail</c> recipe:</p>
311 <pre>
312 :0:
313 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
314 Mail/listname
315 </pre>
316 <p>This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list manager emails.</p>
