This is VGER.KERNEL.ORG
Majordomo Info


The mission of vger.kernel.org is to provide email list services for the linux kernel developers.

Sections:


As of now, subscription support is not handled at the web!

All VGER list control activities (joining and leaving, that is) are handled via email server at address:

majordomo@vger.kernel.org
All email sent to there must be TEXT/PLAIN, there can be no multipart messages, no VCARDs, nothing ``fancy''. In presence of such things, Majordomo will very likely do the wrong thing.

When you send there email, do make sure that all of the email headers, both visible and transport level, have same addresses in them. People experience problems when for example ``From:'', ``Sender:'' and possible ``Reply-To:'' headers present different addresses. The most common manifestation is complete silence from VGER!

You can test email delivery between you, and VGER by sending an empty test letter to: <autoanswer@vger.kernel.org>

If you don't know how to use Majordomo, start with word:

help
as the message body -- as the entire content of the message.
Majordomo does not care of what you use as ``Subject:''.

Basic introduction is given below.

A listing of all lists, and their archives at VGER's Majordomo.


Very short Majordomo intro

Send request in email to address <majordomo@vger.kernel.org>

To subscribe a list (``linux-kernel'' is given as an example), use following as the only content of your letter:

subscribe linux-kernel
Like via this URL: "subscribe linux-kernel".

To get off a list (``linux-kernel'' is given as an example), use following as the only content of your letter:

unsubscribe linux-kernel
Like via this URL: "unsubscribe linux-kernel".

Indeed these commands have optional second parameter: your email address, but Majordomo has a tendency to become upset, and refuse to serve, if you use it, and your "From:"/"Sender:"/"Reply-To:" headers don't match with your real address. Less confusion is better, of course.

Taboo things to be done when discussing at VGER lists

The Majordomo is configured with a set of filter rules which when triggered will send the email to "/dev/null".
(List owner actually, but they are overworked elsewere, and use "d" button usually...)

See the actual Majordomo taboo expressions.

At the Linux-Kernel List FAQ you can see several other things which may cause your subscription to disappear.
Specifically the Section 3 - Mailing list questions is generically valid.
