Good info, thanks.

I specifically need to know, if I set up two lists, with some users on
x-announce and some on x-discussion, will the "umbrella list" option know
that anyone from EITHER list is authorized to post, under the members-only

That is, is the umbrella list option designed to be used with the "restrict
posting to members only" option?  Does anyone know this?  I am guessing
that it probably isn't.

If there is some slick way to send messages to both lists (either umbrella
list or a common alias) AND still restrict posting to members, that would
be great for what I want.  Otherwise, I'll probably just set posting to
"allow anyone" for both lists...

Thanks again.
