What do you mean by alternate ? Have 2, or just move it ?

I think it wouldn't be that hard to move it to Savannah and ask
Verio to redirect all e-mails that go to lynx-dev for a year or
so. Sure, those would be moderated by us. And after a year they
could just send back and e-mail about the move.

But we'd also need the list of current subscribers for lynx-dev
and lynx-dev-contrib.

And what happened to
? It's there, but how do we access it ?

There's also that I use for my
mailing-list, but I don't know if it'd be a good idea to use
it. You never know how long it'll last. The good think is that
doesn't have advertisements like SourceForge, and you have much
more control to administer.

Anyway, I'm willing to setup it or help doing it, and be one of
the moderators. Yes, lynx-dev-contrib is good, it allows you to
post, but isn't mentioned anywhere. I wonder how many people
e-mail lynx-dev and think are being ignored because Verio
doesn't even send them a message about it.

How to contact me -
