Hi John,

Sorry for the late reply.

You've got caught by the Reply-To, which I put for the announcements: there are 
many addresses that are CC'd and I don't want people to answer to them all.  
That's the only occasion I set a Reply-To, sorry about that.

Thanks a lot for your feedback!

I have tried a few background colors on my terminal, and it's "ok".  I have not 
tested enough terminals to be sure about the right choices though.  I hope 
people will contribute more style sheets for Bison.  Bruno is offering several 
of them for Gettext 
(http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/gettext.git/tree/gettext-tools/styles), we 
should do the same.

With respect to color blind people, good call, thanks!  I'll ask friends of 
mine what they think about the default colors I used.
