Hello all,

The mailing list is still not back to normal - my email below was
sent on 13 November and did reach the archive,


However, one subscriber tells me it only just reached them today
(27 November), about two weeks later. Also, our mailman server
is still dealing with a backlog of spam targeting our mailing list
owner addresses.

If any of you have experience with mailman and would like to
volunteer, please do get in touch - the OBF board can be reached
via board at open-bio.org (or in case of mailing list problems, as now,
please include obf-board at googlegroups.com as a fall back).


(Also on the board of the OBF as treasurer)
