For the benefit of those of you on the mailing list who haven't heard
about this yet, I'm proposing that there be a UseNet newsgroup named
comp.lang.lisp.mcl to replace the info-mcl mailing list. [...]
If you don't have access to UseNet, I believe there are still ways
for you to see the newsgroup messages, but I'm no expert in this area;
perhaps someone who is would like to explain how that would work.
I have no objection to starting the newsgroup, but for the
benefit of those people who don't have access to news (me
included) I think you should arrange a gateway between the
mailing list and the newsgroup. I know there is software
that can do this, but I don't have any details about it...
Perhaps Apple Cambridge would be willing to provide this
How many people don't have access to news? If it's only a
small number then maybe there's no need to gateway the
newsgroup to the mailing list.
How 'bout a quick survey: Could people who DON'T have
access to news please reply to me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
DO NOT reply to the list! I'll summarize the results.
