You obviously aren't on a slow dialup line when you can sneak the phone
line. When I _can_ get the phone line, I prefer to update apt and Etch
rather than download tonnes of OT email.
Why don't we have a separate OT list that those interested in can
subscribe to where threads can migrate when they get OT? There's also
the issue of who is paying for debian's archiving of all the OT stuff?
A separate OT list wouldn't have to be archived by debian.
