1. about ig-news
[note: in this document, the phrase "indigo girls mailing list"
refers to the indigo girls mailing list at  see section 4
for more information.]

ig-news is a 100% moderated list for distribution of information
regarding the indigo girls.  information sent to the list will be
mainly gathered from sources such as the indigo girls mailing list, and the world wide web.  please note that
nothing will be posted to this list that is not also forwarded to the
indigo girls mailing list.  in essence, this list is intended to be a
chatter-free version of the regular indigo girls list.  if you are
interested in participating in discussion about the indigo girls and
their music, you should consider subscribing to the indigo girls
mailing list at instead (see section 4 for more

this list is moderated.  this means that all list messages must first
be approved by the list moderator before being released for
distribution to the list.  except in exceptional circumstances, only
indigo girls-related information such as tour dates, news articles,
boot tree information, selected concert reviews etc will be accepted
for distribution.  subscriber contributions are welcome, but please be
aware that approval (and non-approval) of messages is entirely at the
list moderator's discretion.  this list is owned and moderated by
sherlyn koo (

this list is available in both bounce and digest format.  "bounce"
means that individual messages will be sent to you as soon as the
list server receives them.  "digest" means that the list server will
compile all list messages and send them to you as one long message,
either every 24 hours or when a certain size quota is reached,
whichever happens first.  see section 3 for instructions for
switching between bounce and digest formats.

ig-news is run using majordomo.  please note that some majordomo
commands may be subtly different from the listserv commands used at  see section 2 for a list of the relevant email
addresses, and section 3 for a list of common majordomo commands.

please note that this mailing list is completely unofficial and is in
no way connected to indigo girls or their management.  it is intended
only as an information resource for fans.
