I'm sending this back to the lists.

It is very simple to set up a Google group. It would take all of 3 minutes. Then, send out a letter to the mailing list telling everyone to join the google group. Group name OCTAVE or OCTAVE USERS GROUP. When you join a google group you can elect to receive all the posts as email or not.... I think all the gateways..usenets...etc... complications are unnecessary. WDF

I don't want to create a new mailing list. (which I think is what this procedure would do.) Nor do I think everyone on the list wants to send their messages to two different mailing lists just for my benefit.

what I am thinking of is more along the lines of debian-user is set up so that it is mirror as linux.debian.user and I can read it from google groups without having the thousands of users sign up for google groups
