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.

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.

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/>

331We used to host our own mail archives, but that got pretty boring fast. The 502Archives 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

354that can also be used to post to the list. Here's an example of how this works. 701

722To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from

776<b>Miscellaneous list policies.</b>
777</p>
778
779<p>
780HTML email is discouraged, but not forbidden (there are some MUA, specifically
781web-based that make it very hard to disable HTML entirely). Beware that some
782users may have their recieving side configured to hide HTML entirely, so it
783might look like you are ignored, especially if you sent HTML-only email. In
784order of preference, you should endeavour to send: text/plain, multipart with
785text/plain before text/html, text/html. MIME is acceptable and widely used.
786</p>
787
788<p>
789Please do not send any vacation or out of office messages to the list. In the
790interests of reducing list spam, if you set any auto-responding message that
791goes to the lists, we will unsubscribe your account from ALL lists. Any
792previously subscribed addresses that send mail server messages to the lists will
793also be removed.
794</p>
795
796<p>
797Do not cross-post when sending messages to a list! Sending the same message to
798more than one list at a time leads to fragmentation of the thread when some
799people reply on one list, and some on another list. There's no guarantee that
800the recipients of your message are on both lists. Choose just one list when
801sending a message.
802</p>
803
804<note>
805For general email list etiquette, <uri

839There may be other places where lists are distributed — please make sure you
840never send any confidential or unlicensed material to the lists. This includes
841things like e-mail addresses. Of particular note is the fact that spammers,
