Changing mailing list software...

As you might have guessed from the shutdown of the CVS server, I'm 
shaking up and removing cruft.

We're in the process of upgrading from its current, 
extremely broken Gentoo install to Ubuntu. The first step of this 
process is removing 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 lokisetup at as usual. Problems can go 
to my email address.

aaaaand...if this totally fails, I'll put ezmlm back in place.

ok, here we go...
