Although we attempted to update the Mailman list software to the
latest release version, unknown difficulties forced us back to version
2.1.9, the same as it was before. However, it's a fresh install which
I hope will alleviate some of the problems some members were having
with duplicate email messages. If not, please let us know.
I may make another attempt to update the underlying Mailman software,
-or- we may move to a newer mass-emailing system built into the new
CMS we are building. Final designs are not etched in stone.
Either way, we'll continue to preserve the old archives.
Thank you for your patience as we work through these things.
