Announcement: New listserver

(apologies in advance to those that receive multiple copies of this...)

November 17, 2000 - Announcement: New listserver

The LDP is happy to announce a new listserver, which extends our
services with almost sure spam elimination, web archive, on-line
searching, and very fast delivery. Thanks to Ibibilo.org for a
dedicated machine and network. Thanks to Debian for maintaining our
lists up to this point.

We have made the following e-lists on our server; subscription is
open for all of them (to subscribe, see the instructions below):

 1. discuss@linuxdoc.org - general discussion list

    parameters: subscribers post only, please subscribe before

 2. docbook@linuxdoc.org - DocBook (SGML) and document publishing
    related discussions

    parameters: subscribers post only, please subscribe before

 3. announce@linuxdoc.org - major announcements and document
    updates posted

    parameters: a low volume list; only LDP staff can post. If you
    wish to announce something important, please mail your proposal
    to someone from the LDP staff first.

 4. cvs-commits@linuxdoc.org - commits to our CVS repository

    parameters: only cvs server can post. More information can be
    found in the LDP Author Guide: CVS.

 5. submit@linuxdoc.org - general (document) submits address;
    list designed for one-way communication from authors to LDP staff
    for submission of new or updated document (but anyone can

    parameters: everyone can post, so list volume is not known; spam
    is possible.

Because our new server checks the exact sender of a message (to
prevent spam), you need to (re-)subscribe to these lists as
"yourself"; from the mail account you will post or receive from.

Important: the old server/lists will work only until 15th December 2000!

To subscribe, send an empty message to:


(eg. announce-subscribe@linuxdoc.org).

Each list is archived in two forms: text files (accessible by
e-mail), and from http://list.linuxdoc.org/ (with a mysql-driven
searchable archive). Listserver commands are available by sending an
empty message to <list-name>-help@linuxdoc.org
(eg. announce-help@linuxdoc.org).

If you have questions, please e-mail our listmaster: ser@linuxdoc.org


(this information is also posted on http://www.linuxdoc.org)
