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

44The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
45a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by <uri
46link="http://mlmmj.mmj.dk">mlmmj</uri> and provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers
47and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to comply with modern mailing list
48manager standards and conventions.
49</p>
50
51<p>
52One interacts with <c>mlmmj</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
53empty email to:
54</p>
55
56<p>
57<c>listname+subscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c>
58</p>
59
60<note>
61Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe
62to, e.g.: <c>gentoo-user+subscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c> to subscribe to the
63<c>gentoo-user</c> mailing list.
64</note>
65
66<p>
67You will then recieve a subscription confirmation request (double opt-in) from
68the list manager, that you must reply to if you wish to subscribe.
69</p>
70
71<p>
72Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:
73</p>
74
75<p>
76<c>listname@lists.gentoo.org</c>
77</p>
78
79<p>
80To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:
81</p>
82
83<p>
84<c>listname+unsubscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c>
85</p>
86
87<note>
88You must use the identical address that you subscribed with to unsubscribe
89successfully. If your email address is now forwarded/rewritten beyond your
90control, please contact the list owner via
91<c>listname+owner@lists.gentoo.org</c> with a request for manual removal.

96from the list manager, that you must reply to if you wish to be unsubscribed.
97</p>
98
99<p>
100All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
101a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
102each post. If you are subscribed to the digest variant and wish to be
103unsubscribed, you must specifically unsubscribe from the digest variant. Using
104the email address that you wish to (un)subscribe, send an empty email to the
105following addresses to subscribe and unsubscribe from mailing lists
106respectively:
107</p>
108
109<p>
110<c>listname+subscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
111<c>listname+unsubscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c>
112</p>
113
114<p>
115Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
116it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
117These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
118</p>
119
120<p>
121<c>listname+subscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
122<c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c>

792<b>Miscellaneous list policies.</b>
793</p>
794
795<p>
796HTML email is discouraged, but not forbidden (there are some MUA, specifically
797web-based that make it very hard to disable HTML entirely). Beware that some
798users may have their recieving side configured to hide HTML entirely, so it
799might look like you are ignored, especially if you sent HTML-only email. In
800order of preference, you should endeavour to send: text/plain, multipart with
801text/plain before text/html, text/html. MIME is acceptable and widely used.
802</p>
803
804<p>
805Please do not send any vacation or out of office messages to the list. In the
806interests of reducing list spam, if you set any auto-responding message that
807goes to the lists, we will unsubscribe your account from ALL lists. Any
808previously subscribed addresses that send mail server messages to the lists will
809also be removed.
810</p>
811
812<p>
813Do not cross-post when sending messages to a list! Sending the same message to
814more than one list at a time leads to fragmentation of the thread when some
815people reply on one list, and some on another list. There's no guarantee that
816the recipients of your message are on both lists. Choose just one list when
817sending a message.
818</p>

821For general email list etiquette, <uri

823excellent primer.
