I appreciate the pointers. One of the problems(?) with mailman is that
there is _so_ much information, it's close to overwhelming.
My project, bogofilter, suffers from difficulty in finding the right
information, even though we don't have as much info. I suspect that our
documentation could be better organized than it is :-(
