Re: New mailing list

I may account for at least one newbie in attendance.  If no one else can get access to the building, I can email the facilities people and see if I can get access added to my Penn card.

Good news everyone!

As I mentioned at our last meeting, I've been working on updating the
mailing list software we use for our group.  Most of the other monger
groups are using a mailman setup hosted on  Our group has been
around so long that we predate that.  We're still using an ancient
majordomo system.  The new system will give us online list archives,
better spam protection, easier list administration, and easier
subscription process for new users.

It took longer than I anticipated, but the new mailing list has
finally been set up for us.  So here's what's going to happen:

1. I'm going to mass subscribe everyone who's currently on this
   mailing list to the new one.

2. If all goes well, you will receive a welcome message from the new

3. Assuming that goes well, I'll send out another welcome message
   myself to the new list.

4. Our new mailing list address will be .  The
   old list won't be going away anytime soon.  (In fact, I'm not even
   sure who to contact about that...)  But please direct all future
   list traffic to the new address.

I'm going to start this as soon as I hit send, and it should only take
a few minutes to complete.
