We discussed about the move to Savannah a year ago.

I think we could at least host the mailing-list there. I'm
willing to be one of the moderators (I'm of the smartmontools
mailing-lists hosted at and of my cable modem
service user group at

Since Bob Izenberg (one of lynx-dev moderators) created (I
didn't know) the project at Savannah at the time (do a search
for Savannah lynx on Google), I think there'd be no problem to
ask him to move all lynx-dev subscribers, and he could also
redirect all e-mails for a time (maybe a year or until 2.8.5 is
released), which would be moderated. After that he could just
send back an e-mail about the move to Savannah.

I also think someone from Savannah may be able to index all
FLORA archives.

I'm not considering since they now put
commercial junk on all e-mails. And I'm pretty sure Savannah
will stay.

BTW, you wrote at

"and just now, visiting savannah, I don't see any sign of a
mailing list archive."

Sure, there are none for lynx.

All are at

And I don't think subscribers-only is the way to go.

Just think about.
