Hmmm... yes, on second thought not such a bright idea. But perhaps a bridge to an archiving-only mailing list (freebsd-forums@) similar to freebsd-cvs@ for forum posts could be set up anyway? IMHO there should be a way to archive forum posts in some way, and make them available in near real-time to users whose workflow is much more geared towards mailing lists. One might miss an interesting forum thread, because not everyone looks regularly there, but missing a catchy subject line in an MUA from the forums may be more difficult. -cpghost. -- Cordula's Web. http://www.cordula.ws/ _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
