How to subscribe to the mailing list of the linux kernel or a specific
Chose the subsystem you'd like to subscribe to from here. This example will chose linux-bluetooth.
The subscription email will need to be sent in plain text. Be sure to check that first :
- Gmail web client -> there is a Plain text mode you can set
The second part is to generate the content of the mail.
Notice that the subject is empty and that is how it should be.
If that was successfully received, the server will respond with a message welcoming you to the subsystem mailing list.
How to post to the mailing list?
To post to the mailing list one subscribed to above use the following:
Your arbitrary subject
Your arbitrary plain text body
The status with Gmail web client at the moment is that you don't receive your own posts from the mailing list, but they do end sent to the all the other subscribers. Don't know a fix for that atm.
