  I've noticed a distinct decrease in the volume of mail in the activists
mailing list.  Say, down to 0 now!  I think i've seen snatches of conversation
about the list...but our newsfeed is VERY behind!   Can anyone mail me
and tell me why?  Just curious is all...

Thanks,
  Ed

	Once again ;-) should this be FAQ?

	Linux-Activists should now be running. The list has
	been disabled due the problems it caused; too high
	mail volume. Now many channels are digested - I'm
	still going to make it better, even allow some
	people send to digested channel undigested mails
	(moderators?). I reprogrammed everything using perl,
	because it has nice string functions .. and it is
	fast enough.

	Digested channels are:
		680x0		configs		doc
		fsf		gcc		interviews
		kernel		mgr		msdos
		net		normal		scsi
		serial		slip		sound
		tape		term		uucp
		x11

	These are currently sent daily. When Mail-Net configuring
	gets better I might change some digested channels
	sent twice in a day etc. Lists having less than about
	50 users are sent directly.

	The system is going to look soon like mail based "irc" ..
	and give more service for ALPHA/BETA testers, for which
	the list mainly appear. There are much more better places
	to ask FAQs, like "telnet your.archie.site","login: archie",
	"prog inux".

	I'm going to release Mail-Net sources, so you can spread
	yafv (Yet Another Finnish Virus) ... irc to mailing lists ;-)

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM
