If the problem persists, we need to do something. Yahoo is an
alternative, google groups is probably worth looking at.

Something I considering setting up for Vulcan was a web-based discussion
forum with email notification. A web based display has a number of
clear advantages -- it shows the posts as a tree, performs uniform
formatting, supports attachments, lets a responder see the full state of
the thread before responding, and keeps a full archive of threads. I
don't know the downsides because I haven't deployed it yet. It would
probably take some iteration to get right, but for the devel list, I
think it would be a big step forward.

Any other thoughts?
