(Answer) (Category) Linux on PowerPC FAQ-O-Matic :
How do I get on an appropriate mailing list?
For MkLinux, see this URL, which includes a link to archives, charters, rules, tips and a handy web-based subscription form:

11/11/98: The Linux/PPC (aka linux-pmac) lists are now at http:// lists.linuxppc.org.
There are three lists on this server:

Announcements of new software, hardware, projects, etc. relating to Linux on PowerPC. (Moderated)
Communications among active developers of Linux on PowerPC. This is a public list but is not intended for user support.
Support for Linux on PowerPC from other users for software, networking, installation, and most anything else.

The user and development lists also have digest versions available as linuxppc- user-digest and linuxppc-dev-digest, respectively.

To subscribe/unsubscribe: Please go to http://lists.linuxppc.org/

Searching: Searchable archives of the lists are available at http:// lists.linuxppc.org/.

Note that these new lists are hosted on lists.linuxppc.org, which should help sidestep the problems some of you may have experienced mailing to linux-ppc because of the DNS confusion with its host. If you experience problems getting mail to lists.linuxppc.org, you can contact the list admin at Dave_Wolfe@computer.org.

Mail to linux-ppc@dev.linuxppc.org is forwarded to the user list during the transition. Forwarding of linux-pmac is yet to be determined, but will be announced on linuxppc-announce.

// end announce //

For linux-pmac (LinuxPPC on PCI macs), send listproc@samba.anu.edu.au with a line in the body saying:

subscribe linux-pmac

To get the digested version, send email to the same address with no subject and this line in the body:

set linux-pmac mail digest

For LinuxPPC (Linux for PCI PowerMacs and PReP machines) send majordomo@meetpoint.mcu.motsps.com with a line in the body saying :

subscribe linux-ppc

No matter what list you subscribe to, be sure to keep the "invoice" the server sends you! It tells you how to unsubscribe (linux-pmac subscribers: see http://samba.anu.edu.au/listproc/), or how to change to digest mode, if available. This is important, as it really annoys the other thousands of list readers when some guy can figure out how to subscribe, but is too lazy to figure out how to unsubscribe later, and sends unsubscribe messages to the whole list.
listproc@samba.anu.edu.au, jordomo@meetpoint.mcu.motsps.com, jonh@cs.dartmouth.edu, jjv200@acf2.nyu.edu, dabnsh@ix.netcom.com, jhaas@linuxppc.org

linuxppc-dev@cs.wisc.edu is chartered as follows:
 This list is for the discussion of issues related to 
 the advancement of Linux on PowerPC.  Including, but not limited to:
        -RPM development/maintenance
        -Compiler Development
        -"Release" Coordination
NOT including: -how to set up ppp -how to install the linuxppc system -where to find books about unix
If you're doing linuxppc *development*, tell majordomo@cs.wisc.edu :
  subscribe linuxppc-dev

The correct URL for Apple's mailing lists (Mklinux etc) is: http://www.lists.apple.com/cgi-bin/mwf/board_show.pl?id=1&pg=2
or if that doesn't work, try: http://www.lists.apple.com/
