We're just in the initial brain-dump phase of a mailing list,, In a
few weeks we'll certainly be in the small list category... :)

I think a newsgroup would be a bad idea-- with even long-established
alt groups (ie:!) falling out of the feed here in
Australia and elsewhere because of the problems the hierarchy is for
news admins, how do you expect a new group to propagate outside a
minority of systems like Netcom? Mailing lists are readily available
everywhere and have near-instant propagation. And what if alt.*
effectively disappears as a consequence of S.314??
