While automated forwarding of PSC mailing list mails is easy, how
to treat responses from the community? This would require a subscription
(if you generally open, you get tons of spam or unrelated stuff). While
weblist AT grass.itc.it *is* not restricted and 'bogofilter' works
well to filter
it, I don't know if this would work equally well for a PSC list.
Well, that's probably a more technical question.

The general question is: dedicated list or not. It seems that we have
contrary opinions at the moment.
