I use "procmail" to forward my linux-kernel mail to a listproc server,
which digestifies it and sends it back to me and some advanced users
here.  The digests come about once per day, and average 150K.  A
related list, debian-user, averages 75K per day.

It's not official or anything, but if you want you can subscribe to
one or both of these by emailing "listproc@tln.lib.mi.us":

	subscribe linux-kernel Your Name
	subscribe debian-user Your Name
	thank you

The politeness tells it to ignore the .signature.  :-)
