RE: Why mailing-lists? Usenet have been invented, I hear. ;-)
I think that would be a excellent alternative for some people. I consider
the lists invaluable sources of information, but not everyone has the
bandwidth to have lots of emails coming in to their inbox. Someone did
mention that there was a mirror to the lists, so hopefully that is the case.

I plan to try litttle news server for (possibly) all newsgroups, just for
myself for now but maybe I'll make it public (well, i need agreement from
list admins probably).
