Agree that the links to the archives should probably point to the Apache archives rather than Nabble's, so the unsubscribe documentation is clearer.  Also, an (unsubscribe) link right next to subscribe with the email already generated could help too.

I'd be one of those highly against a footer on every email.

Who can edit the community page?

It's not in the git repo.

Hey Andrew,

Since we're seeing so many of these e-mails, I think it's worth
pointing out that it's not really obvious to find unsubscription
information for the lists.

The community link on the Spark site
( does not have instructions
for unsubscribing; it links to a different archive than the one you
posted, which doesn't show that info either.

The only place right now I can see that info (without going to the
generic Apache link you posted) is by looking at the e-mai'ls source,
where there is a header with the unsubscribe address.

So maybe the web site should also list the unsubscribe address, or
link to the Apache archive instead of Nabble?

I know many people might not like it, but maybe the list messages
should have a footer with this administrative info (even if it's just
a link to the archive page)?
