I am glad to hear that there is an archive of all of our messages. I set
this up to start the mail archive because I felt like the question of where
is a mailing list archive is never answered and at least now we have
somewhere to point everyone when the question is asked. They have some brief
instructions on how to import existing archives but I don't know if it will
be helpfull. If you are going to host something like this on crosswire I
think that would be even better since the mail archive cannot promise they
will be in existence tommorrow. They can be found at:
http://www.mail-archive.com Perhaps the software they use to do the
archiving is open source and it can be used on the crosswire.org box?

I am just trying to be more than a whining mouth here and I am trying to do
something about one of my concerns. I would be excited to hear what becomes
of this.  :)

In Christ,
