Every project has a default set of core mailing lists.
The despots of a project are the moderators of all lists and will receive administrative messages from time to time from the ezmlm list management system.

h3:announce@project.codehaus.org

Messages sent to the announce@ address get automatically copied to the dev@ and user@ lists. Additionally, a blog entry is added to the Haus News blog.

h3:user@project.codehaus.org

The user@ list is intended for user-based discussions of the project.

h3:dev@project.codehaus.org

The dev@ list is intended for developer-centric disucssions of project implementation, direction, and management. Using addcommitter to add a committer to a project will also cause the user's @codehaus.org address to be subscribed to the dev@ list.

h3:scm@project.codehaus.org

The scm@ list receives source change notifications and Jira change notifications. Some of the membership of this list is automatically handled using the normal project management tools to control committer access. Using addcommitter to add a commiter to a project will also cause the user's @codehaus.org address to be subscribed to the scm@ list.

h3:despots@project.codehaus.org

The despots@ list acts as a central point-of-contact for all despots of a project. All of the membership of this list is automatically handled using the normal project management tools to control despot priveledges. Using adddespot to add a despot to a project will also cause the user's @codehaus.org address to be subscribed to the despots@ list.

List info

Information about a particular mailing list can be printed with

Administration

All administration is done via email. (This only applies for options configurable by subscribers, right?)

Added addresses that can post

Most likely you want your lists to be set up so that only subscribers can post. In this case, if you want to allow certain addresses to post without being subscribed use the following command:

ezmlm-sub /home/projects/PROJECT/lists/<LIST>/allow name@domain

Allowed message size

To change the maximum allowed message size edit the msgsize file in the list directory. If it exists it is assumed to contain max:min, where max is the maximum size in bytes of an acceptable message body, and min the corresponding minimal size. Either will be ignored if zero or omitted. If the ezmlm-reject command line specifies the list directory, messages not meeting the size criteria are rejected. Default is 30000:2.
