怎么订阅Linux内核邮件列表

官方页面:

http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html

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

从现在开始,订阅操作不在通过web方式操作啦。

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

所以的VGER列表的操作都通过邮件的方式搞定。

majordomo@vger.kernel.org

All email sent to there must be TEXT/PLAIN, there can be no multipart messages, no VCARDs, nothing “fancy''. In presense of such things, Majordomo will very likely do wrong thing.

所以的邮件都必须以纯文本发送。不需要multipart message,不需要VCARD,不需要花哨的东东。如果你违反了,Majordomo系统就会出错。

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!

你必须确定你发送的邮件的FROM, SENDER, REPLY-TO部分都是同一个邮箱地址.如果这几个地址不一致的话,系统很可能不给你任务回复信息。

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

你可以发送一个空邮件给 autoanswer@vger.kernel.org来测试一下。

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

如果你不知道如何使用majordomo,试下help命令。

help

as the message body — as the entire content of the message.

整个邮件内容只有一个单词:help
Majordomo does not care of what you use as “Subject:''.

Majordomo并不关心你的邮件主题。

Basic introduction is given below.

基本介绍如下:

A listing of all lists, and their archives at VGER's Majordomo.  邮件列表被分成各个部分,所有部分的列表见这个URL.


Very short Majordomo intro

Majordomo 的简短介绍

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

发送邮件到 majordomo@vger.kernel.org

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

要订阅一个列表时,以订阅linux-kernel为例,使用如下邮件内容:

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:

退订时也很简单

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.

其实,这个命令还可以用可选的参数。但是majordomo很可能会出错。如果你使用参数,但是你的邮件头中的FROM,REPLY-TO不一致,就会出错了。越少麻烦越好呢,不是吗?

Taboo things to be done when discussing at VGER lists

使用VGER列表的禁忌。

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…)

Majordomo配置了筛选规则,如果你违返了,就如果发信给/dev/null,你得不到任何回复。

列表的维护者非常非常忙碌,他们很愿意删掉与他们的工作内容无关的邮件。

  • Usage of HTML in email — even as an alternate format — is considered to be signature characteristics of SPAM. 绝对不要使用HTML邮件,即使作为可选的方式。这样的邮件会被当成是垃圾邮件.
    Ignore this at your own peril! 忽略下面的禁忌,后果自负!
  • A collection of phrases/keywords which appear commonly at those bloody SPAMs — in case it is a TEXT/PLAIN spam, and not HTML-SPAM…系统收集了一个在该死的垃圾邮件中经常出现的词汇的短语,如果你的邮件内容中也有,那么即使你发送的是纯文件邮件,也会被过系统过滤掉。
  • Message size exceeding 100 000 characters causes blocking. 邮件大小不可以超过100 000个字符。
