Re: policy on editor/pager support


	I think this more or less wraps up this thread. Thank you,
 Christian, for your work. I fail to see how the policy could be more
 widely distributed.

	Now, all dale has to do is figure out where those posts are
 disappearing to for him (does your ISP have a spam filter on?)

 ps. I failed to realize that the weekly postings were distributed to
 more than one list since I have built in duplicate supression.
