So, do we have an agreement ? And maybe you Bob can be the
third administrator / moderator ?

I can't do anything without you.

What I proposed:

1- Move it to Savannah.

2- Create a lynx-dev there.

3- Create a lynx-announce there. Thomas sends announcements
about new releases (and /temp patches) to both.

4- Subscribe all users from the old lynx-dev to the new and
send them a message about the move. They have to reply to it /
follow the instructions to get subscribed.

Yes, we could just add the 140+ automatically, but we don't
know how many are still "valid".

Or we can. Opinions ?

5- Contact the lynx-dev-contrib subscribers and ask if they
want to be added in a list of addresses that can only post.

6- If someone tries to subscribe to the old lynx-dev and
lynx-dev-contrib, send them a message about the move.

The same could be made for messages from non subscribers. But
then you'd probably send hundreds of e-mails back to spammers.

7- Remove the spam from the archives. I already did
it for 2000-January 2004 (thanks to Pine), and really don't
think there was any before it. Well, there was one in December
1999, but that's probably all. A spam (probably from a
subscriber) in thousands of messages isn't that bad. 90% or
more was.

The move can't be done by us. We'd have to contact the Savannah
people (and persuade them ?).

8- Once we're done we can ask to redirect everything
under to the main page of the
new archives.


; To UNSUBSCRIBE: Send "unsubscribe lynx-dev" to address@hidden
