<h3>Mailing List Policy and Disclaimers</h3>
12006 malex 8
<h3>Introduction</h3>
9
<p>
10
Scribus is developed by a team whose members are located on every continent
13631 cbradney 11
and often are geographically quite far from each other. The larger Scribus
12006 malex 12
Community is even more diverse and geographically distributed. Therefore, IRC
13
and e-mail are the preferred ways to discuss Scribus use and development. The
14
email communications for the Scribus Developers and the Community are
15
supported by Scribus Mailing Lists.
16
</p>
17
<p>
18
Our lists are public, meaning anyone can read everything that is posted, and
13631 cbradney 19
participate in the discussions. Everyone is encouraged to help with the development of
20
Scribus and to spread the word of Free Software. The "scribus" list is intended
12006 malex 21
for Scribus usage and general Desktop Publishing discussion, requests for
13631 cbradney 22
help, and announcements. The "scribus-dev" list is intended for
23
development-related discussions between the Scribus Team and interested members of
12006 malex 24
the Scribus Community.

<h3>Basic Use</h3>
12006 malex 28
 
29
<p>
13631 cbradney 30
Each Scribus mailing list (henceforward referred to as "listname") has a submission address in the form
12006 malex 31
listname@lists.scribus.info, a control request address in the form
32
listname-request@lists.scribus.info, and a web page at
12009 mrdocs 33
<a href="http://lists.scribus.info/mailman/listinfo/">http://lists.scribus.info/mailman/listinfo/</a>.
12006 malex 34
</p>
35
<p>
36
To send an email to a list, simply send it to the submission address
37
listname@lists.scribus.info. To subscribe to a list to be able to read
38
incoming mails as they arrive, or to unsubscribe from a list, use the control
39
request address (see below).
40
</p>
41
<p>
42
The current list of available mailing lists is at <a href="http://lists.scribus.info">http://lists.scribus.info</a>
43
presented as an alphabetical list.
44
</p>
45
 
46
<h3>Subscription / Unsubscription</h3>
47
 
48
<p>
49
Anyone is able to subscribe/unsubscribe on their own to any mailing list,
50
presuming the subscription policy for a particular list is open.
51
</p>
52
<p>
53
You can use simple web forms to subscribe or unsubscribe from individual
54
mailing lists, available at their respective web pages at
55
<a href="http://lists.scribus.info/">http://lists.scribus.info/</a>.
56
</p>
57
<p>
58
The requests for subscription or unsubscription can also be sent by email, to
59
a special control address, which is slightly different from the lists address.
60
Subscription or unsubscription messages should NOT be sent to the address of
61
the mailing list itself.
62
</p>
63
<p>
13631 cbradney 64
To subscribe to or unsubscribe from a mailing list, please send an email to
12006 malex 65
</p>
66
<p>
12011 malex 67
listname-REQUEST@lists.scribus.info
12006 malex 68
</p>
69
<p>
70
with the word subscribe or unsubscribe as subject.
71
</p>
72
<p>
73
Please remember the -REQUEST part of the address.
74
</p>
75
<p>
76
As part of the subscription process, the list software will send you an email
77
to which you must reply in order to finish subscribing. This is a security
78
measure to keep people from subscribing others to the lists without their
79
permission.
80
</p>
81
<p>
82
Please remember that an unsubscription request should be sent from the address
83
that is subscribed. If that is not possible, the Subject: header should be:
84
unsubscribe subscribedaddress@subscribed.domain
85
</p>
86
<p>
87
If you're receiving mail from a mailing list
88
but you can't find the address through which you are subscribed, you can use the full headers of the received messages which will include lines like these:
89
</p>
90
<pre>
91
    To: quux@example.com
92
    List-Id: <scribus.lists.scribus.info>
93
    Sender: scribus-bounces@lists.scribus.info
94
</pre>
95
<p>
96
This tells you reliably that the list in question is called scribus and that the subscribed address is quux@example.com. In this (fictional) case you would send e-mail to scribus-request@lists.scribus.info with unsubscribe quux@example.com in the Subject field.

13631 cbradney 127
If you can, please send all of your list emails in English.

Wrap your lines at 80 characters or less for ordinary discussion. Lines longer than 80 characters are acceptable for computer-generated output (e.g., ls -l).
134
</li>
135
<li>Avoid Top Posting: <a href="http://www.blakjak.demon.co.uk/gey_stv0.htm">Here is why.</a> Many list readers get the digest format which really loses readability with top posting. </li>

137
Do not send automated out-of-office or vacation messages.
138
</li>
139
<li>
140

141
</li>
142
<li>

<b>Never</b> send your messages in HTML; use plain text instead
12006 malex 144

<h3>Disclaimer/Privacy Policy</h3>

13631 cbradney 195
The mailing lists are public forums.
12006 malex 196
</p>
197
<p>
13631 cbradney 198
All emails sent to the lists are distributed both to the list subscribers and
199
copied to the public archive, for people to browse or search without the need
200
to be subscribed.
12006 malex 201
</p>
202
<p>
13631 cbradney 203
Furthermore, you can browse our mailing lists as Usenet newsgroups. It can be
204
done using a web interface, like Google or Gmane.
12006 malex 205
</p>
206
<p>
13631 cbradney 207
There may be other places where lists are distributed &ndash; please make sure you
208
never send any confidential or unlicensed material to the lists. This includes
209
things like e-mail addresses. Of particular note is the fact that spammers,
210
viruses, worms etc have been known to abuse e-mail addresses posted to open
211
mailing lists.
12006 malex 212
</p>
213
<p>
13631 cbradney 214
The Scribus Team maintains the mailing lists in good faith and will take steps to
215
curb all noticed abuse and maintain uninterrupted normal service. At the same
216
time, the Scribus Team is not responsible for all mailing list posts or anything
217
that may happen in relation to them.

<h3>Scribus Mailing List Advertising Policy</h3>
221
 
12006 malex 222
<p>
13631 cbradney 223
The sending of any kind of unsolicited bulk email (also known as spam) to any
224
of the Scribus lists is prohibited. Senders of such messages can get blocked from posting on lists and/or reported to the relevant authorities.
12006 malex 225
</p>
226
<p>
13631 cbradney 227
The Scribus Listmasters do their best to stop as many such emails as possible from reaching the lists.
12006 malex 228
</p>
229
<p>
13631 cbradney 230
Many of the rules we use to block spammers and their messages have been reported to us by subscribers. If you wish to help us reduce the amount of spam even more, your help is very much appreciated. To report spam you may send email to mailman@lists.scribus.info with the URL of the message from the mailing list archive. You will get a reply when we act on your submission. Please bear in mind that we will only act on reported spam messages/patterns that have been sent in the last few hours, because there is no point in having out of date filtering rules.
12006 malex 231
</p>
232
<p>
13631 cbradney 233
Do not allow any emails that you receive from any Scribus mailing lists to be sent to an automated spam reporting system. Doing so is often harmful to all users and will force us to block you from receiving traffic from all Scribus lists until you prove that you will not do so again.
