Folks:

There is already a list for this - it just hasn't been used of late. ;)
Attached is the announcement of the announcement list.

Responding to requests, there is a new list up for CU-SeeMe Announcements
from the developers at Cornell. You can subscribe by:

sending to: listserv@cornell.edu

a message with body: subscribe cu-seeme-announce-L <Firstname> <Lastname>

Please be SURE to send your subscribe with a From: field which is where you
will send all future requests from (like unsub) and which will work to get
mail to you. When mail from one of these lists bounces, we will
unceremoniously unsub you on a random basis, without detailed analysis of
the reasons for the bounce. Sorry.

All messages sent to CU-SeeMe-Announce-L will be relayed to CU-SeeMe-L, so
there is no reason to be subscribed to both. You will not be able to post
to the announce list (but you won't have to receive any postings from
anywhere but the CU-SeeMe developers :-).

We will also post Q's from the cu-seeme-l discussion list (with A's) when
they seem likely to be of general interest.

There will be at least one message per week on this list, but there may be
days at a time when nothing shows up. When you subscribe, you will get a
welcome message.

Cheers, -Dick
