21 <p>
22 The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
23 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by
24 <uri link="http://mlmmj.mmj.dk">mlmmj</uri> and
25 provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to
26 comply with modern mailing list manager standards and conventions.
27 </p>
28
29 <p>
30 One interacts with <c>mlmmj</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
31 empty email to:
32 </p>
33
34 <p><c>listname-subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
35
36 <note>
37 Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe to.
38 </note>
39
40 <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
41 <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
42 <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
43 <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
44
45 <p>
46 All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
47 a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
48 each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and
49 unsubscribe from mailing lists respectively:
50 </p>
51
52 <p>
53 <c>listname-subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c><br/>
54 <c>listname-unsubscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
55 </p>
56
57 <p>

59 following address:

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

437 <title>Mailing List Mini-FAQ</title>
438 <section>
439 <title>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
440 the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</title>
441 <body>
442
443 <p>
444 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
445 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
446 "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
447 that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
448 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
449 but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
450 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
451 <c>gentoo-dev-subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
452 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
453 and work email addresses.

460 <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
461 this?</title>
462 <body>
463
464 <p>
465 Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
466 list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
467 following two addresses:
468 </p>
469
470 <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
471 <c>listname-subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>

476
477 <section>
478 <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
479 <body>
480
481 <p>
482 To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
483 <c>procmail</c> recipe:
484 </p>
485
486 <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
487 :0:
488 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
489 Mail/listname
490 </pre>
491
492 <p>
493 This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
494 manager emails.
