While this is *generally* a good idea, I'm afraid it has some of that 
infamous IRC-syndrome, which some people on this list were really 
unhappy about some days ago. While news is of course far more common 
than IRC, it is imho still not as common as e-mail and would leave 
some people out. I, for instance, am behind a firewall, and can not 
choose myself any newsserver I like (i.e. the one that would carry 
rc5 groups). IRC, OTOH, is just fine for me ;-) (don't kick me too 
hard now - I'm not suggesting replacing mailinglist with IRC)
To unsubcribe, send 'unsubscribe rc5' to majordomo at llamas.net
rc5-digest subscribers replace rc5 with rc5-digest
