 The way most people keep up to date on network news is through subscription to a number of mail reflectors (also known as  mail exploders). Mail reflectors are special electronic mailboxes which, when they receive a message, resend it to a list of  other mailboxes. This in effect creates a discussion group on a particular topic.  - E. Krol; The Hitchhikers Guide to the Internet; RFC 1118; Sept. 1989.   Seem's the first "bitnic listserv" is dated from 1984 ! More than 34 years ago !   Just as a reminder, we are now in 2018 ... something called the XXI century ... with 4G, optical FTTH connection,  smartphones ...   Should'nt be time to move away from an old mail-listing to something more modern like a bugzilla or else ???

OK. Done. There's a forum at http://forums.debian.net. As Maui said: "You're welcome."

For more information, please reread.
