Yea I have a couple. 

First off I am disappointed. I even asked beforehand. People have 
unsubscribed. :\ James, I think you have accomplished a new ALFS first, 
# of posts in one day. :)

Secondly, Why do we need a list? Is it not possible for someone to make
a simple bug log of all new activity, changes of old activity, and a reminder
of old non activity? Then someone can post that monthly, weekly, whatever?
Why must it be this cvs/program connection to the mail list? I know we can, 
but really should we do so?

What if halfling, or mark's alfs or ya alfs makes it into the cvs. Is this
new list going to get bug reports and cvs commits for those also? Isn't this
new list going to be a mess of semi-useful traffic? Wouldn't it be 10x more
useful to just add
