Hmm, interesting, I've never bothered subscribing to that list.  I
assumed it was a moderated announcement list that I wouldn't be able
to post to myself, i.e. it would be a one-way list only.  My
assumption was most likely based on my experience with Debian
announcement lists.

I have a hard time seeing a point in having that list:

 - there should be no discussions on the list, and
 - people suggest that announcements be X-posted to haskell-cafe.

Hmm, so what is posted to haskell at haskell.org that a subscriber to
haskell-cafe would be inerested in?
