did you  miss out all  the "action"? is  inaccessible and
hence we aren't able  to use the old address@hidden mailing
list.  Instead  a   new  mailing  list  on  savannah   was  created  -

a     ghost    city.      The     new    mailing     list    is     at  and  you
can           post          to          the           list          at
address@hidden administrative commands (mailman) can
be sent to address@hidden

the CC list.

my  comments will follow  in a  separate mail  to maintain  clarity of
