Mailing Lists

List Descriptions

The e2compr list is for general discussion for both users and developers, concerning e2compr. Anyone can post to this list, whether as a new user asking for help, or to alert users and developers of a possible bug, or to suggest a new feature, or to propose an implementation of a feature and ask for comments. Announcements specific to e2compr-0.4 are sent to this list rather than to e2compr-announce.

The e2compr list is low-volume; it has in the order of one message per week.

The e2compr-announce list is currently reserved for announcements specific to e2compr-0.3 (i.e. old e2compr). Only Peter can post to this list.

It is strongly recommended that all e2compr users be subscribed to at least one of these lists (which depending on which version of e2compr you are using). That way, you're kept up to date with bug fixes.

Thanks to Christoph Lameter for setting up these lists. Send any list problems to, though.

How to Subscribe / Unsubscribe

This is email command help for version 1.0rc2 of the "Mailman" list manager. The following describes commands you can send to get information about and control your subscription to Mailman lists at this site. A command can be in the subject line or in the body of the message.

Note that much of the following can also be accomplished via the World Wide Web, at and (for the e2compr and e2compr-announce lists, respectively).

In particular, you can use the Web site to have your password sent to your delivery address.

List-specific commands (subscribe, who, etc.) should be sent to the *-request address for the particular list, i.e. or for the e2compr and e2compr-announce lists respectively.

About the descriptions: Words in "<>"s signify REQUIRED items and words in "[]" denote OPTIONAL items. Do not include the "<>"s or "[]"s when you use the commands.

The following commands are valid:

subscribe [password] [digest-option] [address=<address>]
Subscribe to the mailing list. Your password must be given to unsubscribe or change your options. When you subscribe to the list, you'll be reminded of your password periodically. `digest-option' may be either: `nodigest' or `digest' (no quotes!). If you wish to subscribe an address other than the address you send this request from, you may specify "address=<email address>" (no brackets around the email address, no quotes!).
unsubscribe <password> [address]
Unsubscribe from the mailing list. Your password must match the one you gave when you subscribed. If you are trying to unsubscribe from a different address than the one you subscribed from, you may specify it in the `address' field.
