There have been several problems recently with the Squeak mailing list (squeak@cs.uiuc.edu) not delivering email to everyone.  Also, the list currently doesn't have an administrator who participates in the list (or much of an administrator at all).  For more details, see Ralph Johnson's comments in this message:


Given this, I'd propose to make this a Squeak Foundation project to host the list.  A couple of people (including Cees de Groot) offered to host the list in response to the earlier mail.  (If there were no objections I'd personally be happy to see Cees host the new list, since he's already demonstrated that he can host the Squeak Foundation list and archives, and is an active participant in both lists.)

One additional minor thing for whoever is in charge of this... it would be nice to keep the existing Yahoo archives (and Georg Gollman's archives) and carry them over to the new list address, if possible.  (I'm not sure if this is possible with the Yahoo archives or not.)
