Let's get the whole thing sorted out:
do you want to have a asymmetric "mirror" system, or can we have
bidirectional mirroring? I would like to input to the drastic
restructuring of the WWW pages.
I'm not sure we have to invent a new distribution scheme. I haven't even
started looking, but there seem to be plenty of mirror and remote
distribution packages. Have you tried many?
I'll handle the tunes lists. Do you want to mirror these at
all? Would you provide search capabilities at sweety, too?
personal E-mail accounts-
Shall I handle MX for the entire tunes.org domain?
I can't handle it yet, but after Bespin's upgrade I may be able to
provide primary/secondary DNS.

OK, sounds good for now.
Should we automatically subscribe everybody from "tunes" to announce,
smiths, and admin?
Is the LLL list dead? Is the latest message really from January, 1997?
> Where did you find wilma? Did you write it yourself?
I received a message from the majordomo-announce mailing list at
greatcircle.com announcing wilma.

What do you mean by "programming"? I think TeX can do whatever it is you
need. Why is HTML so bad? Couldn't you just use a WYSIWYG HTML editor?
