this list be David gets to exclude people for bad taste. When a mail
comes in from an unknown address it gets bounced to the screeners list.
If it isn't spam one or more people reply to the bounced mail and the
reply is an OK to forward this. The idea being to make sure that mail
gets through promptly if it is OK.

and manage it. That somebody needs to grok stuff like perl and mail,
etc. In other words, if you could rewrite majordomo then you're
perfect. This is a good chance for a non-kernel hacker to make the
kernel hackers eternally grateful. Anyone?

To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in
the body of a message to
