Apparently when the list was set up it was set up as a non-GNU project
and not as a GNU project.  Which caused the confusion with the mailing
list addresses.

But it should have been which was where it was expected.  And
of course all of the documentation pointed there.  Which was why we
were working to get it corrected.  Glad to hear is all fixed
now.  I will test it out momentarily.

I sent a note to savannah-hackers a week ago asking questions because
the web interface showed the other (wrong) address.  The responses
sounded as if we should just change the address, which I did, but when
that did not work I sent another note to the group asking for more

You say "mailing list issues need to be emailed to sysadmin" but
sysadmin where?  I was previously under the idea that savannah-hackers
were the admins.  And as I asked in a previous note if there was a
more appropriate forum to discuss issues such as this I would happily
be redirected.  No one redirected me.  So address@hidden  I will
use that for the next issue that comes up.  I see that these messages
were CC'd to system-hackers instead of savannah-hackers.

Thanks for getting this straighted out.  It is much appreciated.
