Here is a simple help file to get you started using the gamelan e-mail list, or as a quick refresher.
There are two basic mail addresses associated with the gamelan e-mail list:
Gamelan list address. Mail sent to this address is distributed to all of the subscribers on the list (as of Sep 1995, roughly 160 people). This distribution is done automatically by the Dartmouth listserv facility.
This is the address of the Dartmouth College listserv automatic mailing service which supports the gamelan e-mail list (through the generosity of the folks at Dartmouth). The listserv automatically processes all of the commands sent to this address.
Commnands for the administration of the gamelan list, such as SUBSCRIBE and UNSUBSCRIBE, are sent to this address. To issue a command, just send it as a single line in the body (not subject) of a mail message to this address. Most of the commands you send will result in an acknowledgment and possibly some other information sent to you at your return e-mail address. Some example commands follow:
