21 The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
22 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by a
23 customized version of <uri link="http://ezmlm.org">ezmlm/idx</uri> that
24 provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to
25 comply with modern mailing list manager standards and conventions.
26 </p>
27
28 <p>
29 One interacts with <c>ezmlm/idx</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
30 empty email to:
31 </p>
32
33 <p><c>listname-subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
34
35 <note>
36 Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe to.
37 </note>
38
39 <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
40 <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
41 <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
42 <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
43
44 <p>
45 All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
46 a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
47 each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and
48 unsubscribe from mailing lists respectively:
49 </p>
50
51 <p>
52 <c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
53 <c>listname-digest-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c>
54 </p>

57 You can learn more about the capabilities of ezmlm/idx by reading the <uri
58 link="http://ezmlm.org/ezman-0.32/ezman1.html">Ezmlm/idx User's Manual</uri>.

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

336 <title>Mailing List Mini-FAQ</title>
337 <section>
338 <title>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
339 the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</title>
340 <body>
341
342 <p>
343 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
344 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>ezmlm/idx</c> supports a
345 concept known as "aliases," allowing you to register alternate email addresses
346 that can also be used to post to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
347 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
348 but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
349 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>jim@home.com</c>) to
350 <c>gentoo-dev-allow-subscribe-james=work.com@gentoo.org</c> (note the <c>@</c>
351 becoming an <c>=</c>,) and then reply to the confirmation email you receive.
352 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
353 and work email addresses.

359 <section>
360 <title>Where do I set/store my mailing list password?</title>
361 <body>
362
363 <p>
364 <c>ezmlm/idx</c> does not use passwords; instead, it uses auto-generated
365 cryptographic cookies for security.

371 <section>
372 <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
373 this?</title>
374 <body>
375
376 <p>
377 Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
378 list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
379 following two addresses:
380 </p>
381
382 <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
383 <c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c>
384 </p>
385
386 </body>
387 </section>
388
389 <section>
390 <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
391 <body>
392
393 <p>
394 To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
395 <c>procmail</c> recipe:
396 </p>
397
398 <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
399 :0:
400 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
401 Mail/listname
402 </pre>
403
404 <p>
405 This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
406 manager emails.
