    I will change your e-mail on the site. This is a good time for me to ask
if I need to change anyone elses info that is on the site.
    The sword-volunteer mailing list would be for coordinating mostly the
non-technical volunteers that do not really want to have to drudge through
the sword-devel e-mails. Software developers and testers would obviously
want to subscribe to sword-devel but translators, writers, and graphic
designers would not want to get all the mail which they have no idea about.
If they receive a task that they need to know what is going on and need to
coordinate with developers, etc. then they can subscribe to the sword-devel
mailing list for the time they are working on the task. It would be a good
idea to have a list just for project steering decisions, then all members
can discuss that.

In Christ,
