11 <title>Gentoo Linux Mailing List Overview</title>
12 <section>
13 <body>
14
15 <p>The Gentoo Linux free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering a variety of Gentoo Linux-related
16 subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by a customized version of <uri link="http://www.ezmlm.org">ezmlm/idx</uri> that provides
17 <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to comply with modern mailing list manager standards
18 and conventions.</p>
19 37
20 <p>One interacts with <c>ezmlm/idx</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an empty email to:</p>
21 <p><c>listname-subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
22 <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
23 <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
24 <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
25 <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
26 <p>All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail a single email to you every couple of days,
27 rather than individual emails for each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and unsubscribe from
28 mailing lists respectively:</p>
29 <p><c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
30 <c>listname-digest-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
31 <p>You can learn more about the capabilities of ezmlm/idx by reading the <uri link="http://www.ezmlm.org/ezman-0.32/ezman1.html">Ezmlm/idx User's Manual</uri>. You can also learn more about the Gentoo Linux mailing list system by reading the short Gentoo Linux mailing
32 list FAQ that appears later in this document.</p>

611To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
612official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports "nomail"
613subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses that can be
614used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works. Let's
615say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>, but
616you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
617address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
618<c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c> You should then be allowed
182 be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home and work email addresses. 619to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home and work email addresses.

623In line with the original spam reduction goal, if you post to the list from a
624non-subscribed address, your mail will be delivered to <path>/dev/null</path>.
625You will <b>not</b> receive any bounce message from our servers. This prevents
626spammers from forging your address to get a bounce delivered to you.

665<b>Miscellaneous list policies.</b>
666</p>
667
668<p>
669HTML email is discouraged, but not forbidden (there are some MUA, specifically
670web-based that make it very hard to disable HTML entirely). Beware that some
671users may have their recieving side configured to hide HTML entirely, so it
672might look like you are ignored, especially if you sent HTML-only email. In
673order of preference, you should endeavour to send: text/plain, multipart with
674text/plain before text/html, text/html. MIME is acceptable and widely used.
675</p>
676
677<p>
678Please do not send any vacation or out of office messages to the list. In the
679interests of reducing list spam, if you set any auto-responding message that
680goes to the lists, we will unsubscribe your account from ALL lists. Any
681previously subscribed addresses that send mail server messages to the lists will
682also be removed.
683</p>
684
685<p>
686Do not cross-post when sending messages to a list! Sending the same message to
687more than one list at a time leads to fragmentation of the thread when some
688people reply on one list, and some on another list. There's no guarantee that
689the recipients of your message are on both lists. Choose just one list when
690sending a message.
691</p>
692
693<note>
694For general email list etiquette, <uri
695link="http://www.dtcc.edu/cs/rfc1855.html">these guidelines</uri> are an
696excellent primer.
