Probably it'd be enough to send the preliminary ballot to -vote, with
an appropriate reply-to set[1], but just reject any messages to the
address. When the voting period starts, send the final ballot to
-announce using at or similar.

I now know how retro SCOs OSes are. Riotous, riotous stuff. How they
had the ya-yas to declare Linux an infant OS in need of their IP is
beyond me. Upcoming features? PAM. files larger than 2 gigs. NFS over
