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

780<b>Miscellaneous list policies.</b>
781</p>
782
783<p>
784HTML email is discouraged, but not forbidden (there are some MUA, specifically
785web-based that make it very hard to disable HTML entirely). Beware that some
786users may have their recieving side configured to hide HTML entirely, so it
787might look like you are ignored, especially if you sent HTML-only email. In
788order of preference, you should endeavour to send: text/plain, multipart with
789text/plain before text/html, text/html. MIME is acceptable and widely used.
790</p>
791
792<p>
793Please do not send any vacation or out of office messages to the list. In the
794interests of reducing list spam, if you set any auto-responding message that
795goes to the lists, we will unsubscribe your account from ALL lists. Any
796previously subscribed addresses that send mail server messages to the lists will
797also be removed.
798</p>
799
800<p>
801Do not cross-post when sending messages to a list! Sending the same message to
802more than one list at a time leads to fragmentation of the thread when some
803people reply on one list, and some on another list. There's no guarantee that
804the recipients of your message are on both lists. Choose just one list when
805sending a message.
806</p>
807
808<note>
809For general email list etiquette, <uri
810link="http://www.dtcc.edu/cs/rfc1855.html">these guidelines</uri> are an
811excellent primer.
