1.6 Where can I find documentation for ezmlm and patches?

man pages
All ezmlm component programs come with their own man pages. Thus, for info on ezmlm-send, type:
          % man ezmlm-send

or if you have unpacked ezmlm, but not made it or installed it:

          % cd ezmlm-0.53
          % man ./ezmlm-send.1

ezmlm(5)
General info on ezmlm and list directories is in ezmlm.5:
          % man ezmlm

or

          % cd ezmlm-0.53
          % man ./ezmlm.5

NOTE: Installation of the ezmlm-idx package updates some existing man pages to reflect changes made by the patch (e.g. ezmlm-send(1), ezmlm(5)).

Text files in the distribution
ezmlm/idx comes with a README file with general instructions, an INSTALL file with installation instructions, an UPGRADE file for upgrading from a previous version and a CHANGES file with information on changes from previous versions. Most other patches or add-ons contain similar files and man pages and should contain identifying suffixes (.iss for ezmlm-issub, for example). For a discussion of the authors' understanding of ezmlm security, see Ezmlm-idx security.
Ezman’, an ezmlm/idx manual
The ezmlm manual is a brief manual that is meant for list subscribers, list moderators and remote administrators, and as an introduction for list owners. It is useful even if you do not use ezmlm-idx. Features requiring ezmlm-idx are marked as such. The manual is available as a set of html files, as a text file, and in a ‘letter’ and ‘A4’ postscript version:
