I don't know anything about bbs style, but ...

a first look at the administration tool of the mailing-list (at the new
domain) shows that there is a possibilty to create a mailing list archiv
nearly automatically. So it may be better to publish an archiv at the
new www.gnubg.org.

A few more words to the account. Unfortunately the administration stuff
seems to be available only in German language (but it's possible to
change it later on). If you all agree I will take over the admin stuff.
Though I'm very busy at the moment (should I say fortunately or
unfortunately as a freelancer in these days ;-)) here is what I can do
in the next few days:

1. Making a simple starting page (this will be the new ... gnubg ...
blah blah ...) and put all the existing links about gnubg into it.

1a. Announce it at r.g.b and the main backgammon webpages
(chicagopoint,galore, village ...)

2. Creating mail accounts for everybody who wants.

3. Creating and maintaining mailing lists. I would like to divide the
upcoming  stuff into a list only for programming and bugfixes
(internal?) and another (public) list for features, help, announcements
and so on.

Question 1: I have a bunch of accounts/passwords for administrating
everything. I would like to send them a few "elder" participants. Is
this ok via plain text email? I would better like to get public keys
(gnupg/pgp) and send them encrypted.

Question 2: AFAICS there is now possibility for users to change their
pop-password. For those who like to get an email-address, please use my
public key at www.acepoint.de (yes, finally I got my own domain ;-)) or

No, I'm not paranoid but I know that a few bad guys are scanning email
traffic for words like "account", "password" and so on.



P.S. I have to apologize that I didn't work at the documentation the
last few weeks (I even forgot to sync the daily sources and have to
admit that I'm not up2date about the new features. Well, at least I know
that gnubg is making music now), but at the moment I'm coaching at day,
writing documentation stuff at night and try to sleep at the weekend.
And I'm glad that my girlfriend still recognizes me ;-).
