Since the IBM servers were sort of donated to us as CLUG's little
playground, I think it has a nice resonance to use them to run the
mailing list.

I didn't realise there were in fact already plans to do so. I'm happy to
wait a little longer till we can implement it there, I just didn't want
the bizarre status quo to continue indefinitely.

Yes you're right. While using phrases like "bizarre status quo", I don't
mean to dis our kind sponsors at, who have been very good to
support us this far.  Thank you samba!

I don't have real strong opinions as to which email at we
should switch to, but I guess we should get a consensus before finally
switching it on.  I'm not keen on linux@, I think it's too generic.
Martin's clug-list@ is clear enough as to its purpose, but
canberra-linux-users@ is nice and expressive too.

Should we take a vote?  By email?  At the next meeting?
