How can I unsubscribe from gentoo-news?

Jarry-3
Hi Gentoo-users,

I'd like to stop receiving news, how can I do that?

Or better said, I'd like to receive gentoo-news only
on one of my 6 servers, and turn this feature off
on remaining 5...

It's in the mail headers:

<mailto:[hidden email]>

you would obviously use -news and not -user


Normal practice (at least with Mailman) is to have such links in the
email footer. I see Gentoo lists don't do that; I believe because they
run Encartis?

Ah, I think he actually means those news items as seen in "eselect news read", as some keywords like "server" and "turn off" suggest...

I probably did not express myself correctly. What I mean
is portage-news. News I get sometimes after "emerge --sync".
Not news-mailinglist...

Ah, that makes more sense ;-)
I *did* wonder why you hadn't thought to read the headers!

from the GLEP:

Users who really don't care about news items can use rsync_excludes to
filter out the metadata/news/ directory.

http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/glep/glep-0042.html


man 5 make.conf also documents FEATURES=news
Oddly enough, we all know how to enable FEATURES (just add to the list),
but I have no idea how to disable them!

I don't have news in my FEATURES but I do get the newsitems. Is

FEATURES=-news

even valid sysntax?

I believe that is the correct way to do it.

Or stick 'eselect news read new' in one of your coworkers' ~/.bashrc files.

In case it doesn't work or cause an error, also try "" marks:

FEATURES="-news"
