There are a couple of mailing lists maintained on this site:
The list server is running GNU Mailman. The previous installation of Majordomo was dumped long ago in favor of Mailman inasmuch as it is far easier to maintain. The old Majordomo mailing list archives remain online. Please note that the server has been set to not respond to the old Majordomo-style commands in the Subject: line in an effort to curb abuse, so please use the web interface to manage your list subscription.Subscribing
Subscribing to the mailing lists is as simple as filling out a web form. Whatever email account that you use to subscribe to the list will be the one that receives the messages or digests. You can optionally add other email addresses to allow posting from multiple e-mail accounts, but that's a separate process that's not covered by the Mailman web interface. Simply send a message listing the alternate accounts to the 'Contact List Admin' link provided below, and I will accommodate your requests as quickly as possible.
Once registered, you will receive a confirmation message sent to the subscribed e-mail account. You must reply to this message in order to activate your subscription. This is simply a precaution to guard against Denial-of-Service attacks and to discourage SPAMers. As part of the registration process, you are required to pick a password for the list. Please keep your password, as you will need it to modify your list options; such as to select either single-messages or digests, and also to temporarily turn off mail delivery while away on vacations. If you forget your password, you can request that it be sent to your registered email account via the web interface. You will also receive monthly notification of your password.List Etiquette
The server is configured with SPAMassassin and Clamav milters, so please don't forward SPAM into the list or design your email messages to resemble SPAM, as they will be forwarded to the infinite bit-bucket, /dev/null.
The tradition in UNIX mailing lists is for plain-text formatting without HTML, so please do not send HTML messages to the lists. Set your e-mail client to only send plain ASCII text to the mailing list and you will be OK. HTML formatted messages will be rejected, as will messages that are longer than the maximum allowed for posting (currently 40,000 characters).
