You can also subscribe via email. Send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the message body containing
where password is the password you will use (one will be assigned if you don't specify it). If you send the text "help" instead you will get a reply with documentation on the email request syntax.
Right now the list archives are only available to list subscribers. This is to avoid having email addresses picked up for spamming (the spam protection that the mailing list software does I consider to be insufficient).
The list right now is pretty busy (150+ messages in the first week) but it will probably slow down. You can also elect to receive messages in a daily digest instead. Or, you can elect not to receive mail at all, and just have an account so you can view the archives.
