You need to post mail to the list using the name that is registered..

My registered name is aliased to another mailbox so I had to create an account with the registered name to send from.

Check the email source/headers and look at the address it was sent to. Use that as the FROM address for posts..

Failing that, login to the list with your password and check the stored details..

BenODen, your job along with other members is to make sure it's simple enough to read and complete enough to use first time..

And Guinea Pigs get fresh lettuce for their work.. and lots of sun..

All the list addresses/details are in the email source/headers..

Before I take the plunge
just how many messages per day
can one expect

I kind of reluctant to have my e-mail box
get 50+ messages a day
the spam is bad enough

dont get me wrong its just that I signed up once
to something similar
and got about 200+ messages per day
until I frantically cancelled it
and I've been scarred for life ever since

It was sent to
lq-security@lists.linuxquestions.org
and that's showing full headers. There is absolutely nothing in the header to indicate this came to my email address other than the fact that it came through the Cotse server in America. If you question the header, I'll send it to you off the board, but I think I can read it correctly.

I noticed that in the friendly little monthly mailman lists.linuxquestions.org mailing list memberships reminder I'm only listed on the wiki list; therefore, I'll just subscribe again. Got too much work to do to guess all night.

But I have to wonder -- if I'm not on the list, why did it send me the Lq-security Digest, Vol 7, Issue 1 email in the first place? I replied to that as per previous post, so perhaps Jeremy can investigate the headers from his end. My email is not in the headers on this end...

If it stays the present course, you'll hardly notice you're subcribed. Let's hope it doesn't...

Ok.. did you receive the bounce test message?

In the headers of that email will be the email address you subscribed as..
Follow the Received headers

When you post, you must use that address as the FROM address.
That's the only way the list knows if you are registered or not, by your FROM address.

As far as the number of messages per day is concerned, it depends whether we use the wiki for discussion or not..
That keeps the discussion about each page with each page. There are email alerts from those pages as well.

I expect there to be quite a bit in the beginning as we discuss the number of Sections, names of sections and sub-sections..

You can make a filter to delete anything unnecessary, or use IMAP access to your server to receive just the post titles and decide which to delete and which to download with your POP account.

If we keep to a good email subject naming strategy, email filters will work well..

I don't know if you're still working on this project but if you need a semi-newbie to linux and a total newbie to linux/unix security count me in as well. I can proof and ask the stupid questions if that would help.

I'm browsing through the LQ Wiki site to see how much of the information is already there, then make some notes on how to write an intro page to use as the menu. This will make a step by step approach to discuss menus, FAQs, lists of necessary docs and writing guidelines..

Then I can post the suggested list on the mailing list and get everyone involved.

Here are a few very simple articles:

"Linux For Beginners"
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/wikka/LinuxBeginners

"Ians Teach yourself Puppy in 24 mins"
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/wikka/Ians

"The Linux commandline"
http://www.goosee.com/goosee/linux/ch03/index.html

"About Linux"
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/wikka/HowToUsePuppy

"More About Linux"
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/wikka/MoreLinux

The Wikipedia has great set of articles on Linux that serve as a good Introduction.
"This article is about Linux-based operating systems, GNU/Linux, and related topics."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux

"Linux For Newbies"

Thumbs up

I think u guys are trying to make something like "the linux cookbook 2nd edition" from Michael Stutz

See here the first edition

http://dsl.org/cookbook/cookbook_toc.html

Even a person without any computer knowledge could become a very good linux user with this book, it is really very easy to use, a "must read" for all newbie!!

Actually, the original intention was for something much shorter..

This Security HOWTO looks very much like "eating an elephant" though..
Lots of data can be included making it quite fat, while most people just want to get started, rather than spending weeks reading..

The second major difference was the intention to be written "by newbies for newbies"..
That's been a hurdle too coz most "self confesed" newbies say they don't know what to include..

So it's going to be started, then "rewritten" by the members until it's easy and effective..
I'm suggesting using the LQ Wiki to get it written, then formatting it as a HOWTO.. That way the changes are being tracked and updates can be made..

So in the style of "eating elephants".. We're going to do it one mouthful at a time..
