Subject: Re: [Blitz-l] Suggestion re consolidating email lists
I'll be happy to share with you the subscription list of the PAL lists - this info is not private, but neither is the list made public (to protect from spam).
I think that the archives of all these lists (blitz-l, panafril10n and the PAL lists) are publicly accessible - that is that even non-subscribers can access message content. Not sure if that is also a concern.
Re MT and the lists, the ideal would be to get a couple of list moderators (I could be one) who could process the mail. This also needs a new list serve software I think, which is another issue.
All the best.
