I have set up a separate SWISH++ discussion list. The list is
hosted via Postdoc, a web-based collaborative environment (that
I also have been developing for the past couple of years, i.e.,
my "day job.") This version of Postdoc is also a newer version
that the version already in massive use, so I'm testing it out
by hosting SWISH++ here.
Anyone can view the SWISH++ "folder" via the URL:
Please take the time to read the material there and learn a bit
about the Postdoc environment. From the submission policy:
Discussion of SWISH++, its features, use, and
implementation are welcome. Additionally,
discussion on broader topics, such as indexing

It is hoped that this will be an

rather than merely being about clueless newbies
who can't RTFM to get the software installed
If Roy wants to have a myopic mailing list devoted primarily to

Note to Roy: I realize this violates your policy so I'll save
you the trouble of warning me in private e-mail and send e-mail

available free of charge to the public having terms very
similar to the GNU General Public License. This could take a
while, however. After all, this is the federal government
we're talking about.
