The rsgb_lf_group is being serviced by majordomo, which is one of the
most widely used listeserver programs. This has the capability to
automatically archive the postings. There are web programs that can then
acesss the archive.
So first off, we should ask the blacksheep owners if they can help us.
Time to set it up and test it will be one issue. If it is a matter of disk
space, then I am sure a disk can be donated. Once the system is running
there is no overhead.
As to the backlog, then I am sure that we can either find or write
a program to convert the existing mails to the right format and place them
in the archive directory.

e-mails and letters /newsletters that were exchanged.

this during the LF Forum at this year's HF Convention
