Changing mailing list software...

We're in the process of upgrading from its current, 
extremely broken Gentoo install to Ubuntu. The first step of this 
process is replacing as much software as possible that doesn't have a 
maintained package, so I don't have to spend my life hunting down and 
compiling updates from source tarballs. One of those things is ezmlm, 
the mailing list software we've been using here. It's sort of crappy 
software anyhow, so I don't think anybody is going to miss it. We'll be 
using GNU Mailman as a replacement.

So after this email, I'm going to convert this mailing list. Do not 
panic if you send mail today and it bounces, as I might just be in the 
middle of converting the list still.

You will get an email notifying you of the new list details. This will 
confirm that your subscription transferred, and give you the archive 
URL, passwords, etc. If you don't get a notice and you don't see a list 
posting from me saying I'm done, you probably didn't get can resubscribe with no problem, though.

Email will still go to bf1942 at as usual. Problems can go to 
my email address.

ok, here we go...
