I'll respond to this here, since it will be good for other people to

Paul, I went ahead and created the list. 


Note that there isn't any information there -- because you can fill it
in yourself via the web forms. I configured it similarly to the ufo list
-- subscriber post only, notify you of subscriptions, etc. What I should
really do is make an "example" list and put the password here on the
list so you guys can play with mailman's configuration options to see
what it's like.

Anyway, Paul, it's really self explanatory -- you need to fill in
descriptions and additional text for new subscribers and stuff like
that. It's important to use the full url, or else the cookie wont work

WHen mailman wants to ask you a question, it will email you a link that
you follow. This is how I've had to allow Nate's posts through (since he
was emailing from a different address). But then I just went ahead and
made an exception for him, under the "privacy management" section (since
list-members-only is a privacy option).

If you have any questions, feel free to mail me on the list, and i'll
answer them.

For the rest of you, please see:


If you want to play with the configurations to see what it's like, email
me off list, and I'll send you the password (so it's not in the
archives). Regardless, I will delete this example list in a week or two,
just for security's sake.

> PPS. What do you debian veterans use to configure X? I tried XF86Setup,

I use XF86Setup, and hand tune normal things like font servers and some
mouse settings. 

It works well, but if I try to run XF86Setup with my "defaults" (say if
I wanted to change something,) the video is all screwed up, even though
I know my chipset is right.
