Many thanks for this link. I had thought that this _was_ the xmonad
mailing list - I didn't know about the place you mention. I will follow
it up. 

I have been much impressed with xmonad so far. I have managed to do some
basic configuring, mainly to change the default mod key. Actually, most
of the defaults are fine for me - I mainly use fullscreen - but it would
be nice to experiment with some of the contrib stuff.
