Please, send me URL to faqs and informations about this and i will
start the process of obtaining a newsgroup for us. More info about
fare's idea of a newsgroup linked with the list can be great too.
The comp.os.lispos seem to me the best solution. I dont think we
should worry too much about non-member writing, very technical
newsgroup like this one did'nt get spammed that much.
