I'll be happy to host the other lists on my servers if that's a problem.

Also, at the meeting last night, Stephen's excellent synopsis of membership, it is clear this group is growing exponentially.

That would seem to suggest that historical trends will not be especially relevant.

Wouldn't this be better if we had -discuss  and -announce?

-announce could contain suggestions for future meetings, so perhaps it's -meetings ?

So maybe there are 4 lists:  -announce -meetings -discuss -jobs
