I could contribute such a mailing list running on my system using
majordomo. Unfortunately I poll my ISP only twice a day which would
cause the list to be rather slow. But if the demand is *very* high I
could set it up on a machine in my ISPs backbone that's connected with
the net 24 hours a day.

Disclaimer: I would contribute the technical equipment for discussion
about creating a newsgroup but I'm not volunteering for the
administrative task of creating that group. ;)

So is there any need for this?


For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
