I'm not sure about this Lorenzo. I think Frank Wammerdam said that he
would take care of setting up the mailing list.

I think it should be fairly easy to add you as a moderator.

Landon, hi
I guess that moderation should be made through mailman system
am I wrong?

"The list moderators have more limited permissions; they are not able to

change any list configuration variable, but they are allowed to tend to 
pending administration requests, including approving or rejecting held 
subscription requests, and disposing of held postings. Of course, the 
list administrators can also tend to pending requests."


I think we should ask SAC (in CC) to kindly make a mailing list and set 
our 3 e-mail addresses as moderators.

can this mail be considered a request to SAC?
otherwise I'll do it via Trac

ciao
lorenzo
