This email is cross-posted to lilypond-user, lilypond-devel
and bug-lilypond. The admin for these three lists (drl@gnu.org,
apparently David R. Linn) has not been active in the project for
a long time, and I have not been able to reach him by email.
This is problematic because you need an admin to nominate
new list moderators. The moderators are the people who approve
or reject posts to a list from people who aren't subscribed,
or posts that are too big. I don't even know if there are
actually any moderators active for any of these lists, is
someone out there a moderator?

The admins also have their addresses displayed at the bottom
of the list info page (example:
so they are the ones people will contact in case of technical
problems or questions about the list. I started to wonder about
this situation when a user contacted me off-list after he had
unsuccessfully tried to contact the admin.

Thus I wrote to the general GNU list server admins and proposed
to step up for being an admin on these lists, just like I am
already an admin on lilypond-user-fr (the French-speaking equivalent
of lilypond-user, in case you didn't know).

Is that OK with everyone?
