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

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>
67Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:
68</p>
69
70<p>
71<c>listname@lists.gentoo.org</c>
72</p>
73
74<p>
75To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:
76</p>
77
78<p>
79<c>listname+unsubscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c>
80</p>
81
82<p>
83All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
84a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
85each post. If you are subscribed to the digest variant and wish to be
86unsubscribed, you must specifically unsubscribe from the digest variant. Using
87the email address that you wish to (un)subscribe, send an empty email to the
88following addresses to subscribe and unsubscribe from mailing lists
89respectively:
90</p>
91
92<p>
93<c>listname+subscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
94<c>listname+unsubscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c>
95</p>
96
97<p>
98Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
99it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
100These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
101</p>
102
103<p>
104<c>listname+subscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
105<c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c>
106</p>
107
108<p>

110the following address:

331We used to host our own mail archives, but that got pretty boring fast. The 485Archives still exist but these lists are closed for new posts.
332following sites host pretty decent archives of most of the mailing lists, so
333please utilize them rather than asking for 'official' Gentoo mailing list
334archives. These are the 'official' ones :).<br/> <uri

351To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from 587Gentoo mailing list archives are collected on <br/>

353concept known as "aliases," allowing you to register alternate email addresses 589</p>
354that can also be used to post to the list. Here's an example of how this works. 590
355Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>, 591<p>

359becoming an <c>=</c>,) and then reply to the confirmation email you receive. 595<uri link="http://www.mail-archive.com">Mail-Archive</uri>
360You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
361and work email addresses.

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

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.
