I notice that the footer has gone back to implying that +help will

this was fixed before,
I'm not aware of that..
I can look up the discussion, but it was changed for a while (maybe
only on the users list? think it was Florian...).

I took that:
Unsubscribe instructions: Email to

more clear this one?

Yes, because it indicates that you'll get instructions, not start the actual unsubscribe.


How would You pack that in max. 80 chars?
In the other discussion, it was mentioned that the longer lines were a
problem because they wrapped inside the mailto, so I suggested
starting the message with "Email to" as you've done here -- but from
what you say they're not allowed to exceed 80 characters at all.
80 characters is a recommended limit which almost every known mail app
won't wrap.

[.. Link posting guidelines on a inner projekt page ..]

Exactly that's what I asked for someone to realize in a wiki page,
to link at instead. Would You like to do that? :o))
What I'm planning is to set up a discussion wiki for collaboration on
what would most likely become a Support page that contained, or if
necessary linked to, all the information we'd like people to consider
when they're looking for help -- use of FAQs, forums, mailing lists,
archives, issue trackers, etc. If this were properly organized, it
could be referenced by, say, moderators receiving posts from
unsubscribed users. I'm trying to come up with a strawman for the
structure to get the ball rolling.
There is some effort going on about the whole issue of how to
support users at their first point of contact, whatever that is,
and I think your suggestion fits in that discussion very well.
That's a great idea..

btw.: Do You or someone else have a link to a good mailinglist
netiquette. Quoting ist just *one* aspect of writing good mails in a
mailing list.
How about
