Well, I am pretty pleased with the web based interface to the mailing list
management system, but it also has its own quirks, like failing to deliver
mail because of "implicit destination" from a properly subscribed
member... (on the other hand, I have a place to correct that problem from
the web page and let the mail go through. My bitch is that I shouldn't
have had to do that ;-(

Josip: Keep looking for problems ;-)

Steve is correct in my wanting to get the job done. Just think how much
work we would yet have ahead of us if I were still waiting on a mailing
list ;-)

When it becomes important enough to the right people for Debian to host
the New Maintainer mailing lists, I'll be happy to move the process over
to Debian servers. 

If I have to file a bug report, I'll need some help on the specifications.
It isn't clear to me just what I should ask for ;-)
(I need to be careful what I ask for, this just might get it for me.)

Waiting is,
