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>
58 Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
59 it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
60 These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
61 </p>
62
63 <p>
64 <c>listname+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c><br/>
65 <c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
66 </p>
67 <p>
68 You can learn more about the capabilities of mlmmj by sending an empty mail to the
69 following address:
70 </p>
71
72 <p>
73 <c>listname+help@gentoo.org</c><br/>
74 </p>

77 You can also learn more about the Gentoo mailing list system by reading the
78 short Gentoo mailing
79 list FAQ that appears later in this document.

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

451 <title>Mailing List Mini-FAQ</title>
452 <section>
453 <title>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
454 the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</title>
455 <body>
456
457 <p>
458 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
459 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
460 "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
461 that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
462 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
463 but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
464 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
465 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
466 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
467 and work email addresses.

474 <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
475 this?</title>
476 <body>
477
478 <p>
479 Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
480 list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
481 following two addresses:
482 </p>
483
484 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
485 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>

491 <section>
492 <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
493 <body>
494
495 <p>
496 To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
497 <c>procmail</c> recipe:
498 </p>
499
500 <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
501 :0:
502 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
503 Mail/listname
504 </pre>
505
506 <p>
507 This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
508 manager emails.
