This document is regularly posted to the FreeBSD-questions mailing list.
Introduction
<literal>FreeBSD-questions</literal> is a mailing list maintained by the FreeBSD project to help people who have questions about the normal use of FreeBSD. Another group, <literal>FreeBSD-hackers</literal>, discusses more advanced questions such as future development work.
The term <quote>hacker</quote> has nothing to do with breaking into other people's computers. The correct term for the latter activity is <quote>cracker</quote>, but the popular press has not found out yet. The FreeBSD hackers disapprove strongly of cracking security, and have nothing to do with it. For a longer description of hackers, see Eric Raymond's <link xlink:href="http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/hacker-howto.html">How To Become A Hacker</link>
This is a regular posting aimed to help both those seeking advice from FreeBSD-questions (the <quote>newcomers</quote>), and also those who answer the questions (the <quote>hackers</quote>).
Inevitably there is some friction, which stems from the different viewpoints of the two groups. The newcomers accuse the hackers of being arrogant, stuck-up, and unhelpful, while the hackers accuse the newcomers of being stupid, unable to read plain English, and expecting everything to be handed to them on a silver platter. Of course, there is an element of truth in both these claims, but for the most part these viewpoints come from a sense of frustration.
In this document, I would like to do something to relieve this frustration and help everybody get better results from FreeBSD-questions. In the following section, I recommend how to submit a question; after that, we will look at how to answer one.
How to Subscribe to FreeBSD-questions
FreeBSD-questions is a mailing list, so you need mail access. Point your WWW browser to the <link xlink:href="http://lists.FreeBSD.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions">information page of the FreeBSD-questions mailing list</link>. In the section titled <quote>Subscribing to freebsd-questions</quote> fill in the <quote>Your email address</quote> field; the other fields are optional.
The password fields in the subscription form provide only mild security, but should prevent others from messing with your subscription. <emphasis>Do not use a valuable password</emphasis> as it will occasionally be emailed back to you in cleartext.
You will receive a confirmation message from <application>mailman</application>; follow the included instructions to complete your subscription.
Finally, when you get the <quote>Welcome</quote> message from <application>mailman</application> telling you the details of the list and subscription area password, <emphasis>please save it</emphasis>. If you ever should want to leave the list, you will need the information there. See the next section for more details.
