Test list for Bay Area Linux User Group (BALUG).
Jobs postings are prohibited.
It is a test list, so some things are and generally will remain different:
Recommended convention: if you do not want a response to your posting to the list, include both of these two strings:
in your Subject: header
and they can be upper and/or lower case (testing should be done case insensitive).
If you don't include both test and ignore, you may get human and/or automated responses, e.g.:
received your posting fine at ...
and here's full headers as received: ...
No guarantees you'll get such response(s), but if you don't include test
and ignore, you certainly may get such response(s).
The list and its archives, etc. may wink in and out of existence, but for the most part will be persistent, have preserved archives, members (subscribers), etc.
Archives may be reloaded and/or altered (e.g. posts added/dropped) - notably for testing - but for the most part the archives will generally contain what was posted to the list.
You should only post to the list from email address you've subscribed to the list. Any other postings/attempts are generally held for moderation and are almost always not approved for posting (why should one be allowed to post to a list one can't bother to even be subscribed to? - it's mostly just spammers that attempt such postings).
