Hello Álvaro

Well, I think that a mailing list is a meaningful way to coordinate 
activities and is better than, let's say a distribution list on each 
user's mail client. With a single address we can reach all people 
interested in our activities (a number that will hopefully grow with 
time). From your question I have the impression that you are aware of 
some good reasons not to use a mailing list. Since I honestly don't see 
any, I would be glad to learn about them in order to be able to 
understand if we should look for a different solution.

Thank you and bye
Charles

somethingsimilar according to the naming rules of the community) and in getting listed on the PUGS list.
