Since there seems to be some confusion on how to get on/off this list...

To subscribe to the list:

Subject: subscribe

To unsubscribe from the list:

Subject: unsubscribe

Note to squid-users subscribers: if other people ask how to unsubscribe
from the list or send other messages that are not of general interest
to squid-users subscribers, please answer them in private e-mail.

                        General info
Subcription/unsubscription/info requests should always be sent to the
-request address of a mailinglist. If a mailinglist for example is
called "thelist@some.domain", then the -request address can be
inferred from this to be: "thelist-request@some.domain".
To subscribe to a mailinglist, simply send a message with the word
"subscribe" in the Subject: field to the -request address of that list.
To unsubscribe from a mailinglist, simply send a message with the word
(you guessed it :-) "unsubscribe" in the Subject: field to the -request
address of that list.
In the event of an address change, it would probably be the wisest to
first send an unsubscribe for the old address (this can be done from
the new address), and then a new subscribe to the new address (the
order is important).
Most (un)subscription requests are processed automatically without
human intervention.
Do not send multiple (un)subscription or info requests in one mail. 
Only one will be processed per mail.
NOTE: The -request server usually does quite a good job in
discriminating between (un)subscribe requests and messages intended
for the maintainer.
If you'd like to make sure a human reads your message, make it
look like a reply (i.e. the first word in the Subject: field should be
"Re:", without the quotes of course); the -request server does not
react to replies.
                        The archive server
Every submission sent to this list is archived.  The size of the
archive depends on the limits set by the list maintainer (it is very
well possible that only, say, the last two mails sent to the list are
still archived, the rest might have expired).
You can look at the header of every mail coming from this list to see
under what name it has been archived.  The X-Mailing-List: field
contains the mailaddress of the list and the file in which this
submission was archived.
If you want to access this archive, you have to send mails to the
-request address with the word "archive" as the first word of your
Subject:. To get you started try sending a mail to the -request address
with the following:
     Subject: archive help
