I think he's saying that the default for mailman ought to be quarterly, 
and I got the impression he was speaking as a user, not an admin -- 
someone who GETS all of those messages every month.

Monthly is traditional, but I think it's worthy of some thought. With 
the List-* headers in the message, and the footer that traditionally 
points to the info pages (and with 2.1, that can be customized to the 
user), do we still need to send out reminders monthly?
