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 "firstname.lastname@example.org":
subscribe linux-kernel Your Name
subscribe debian-user Your Name
The politeness tells it to ignore the .signature. :-)
