I believe that it's Russ Houghland that receives mail from
grass-lists-owner at moon, but I could be wrong. I did the WWW archiving
in hypermail - noone at CERL at had anything to do with it.

Let me reiterate: I DID THIS ONLY AS A DEMO.  I was really hoping that
a few folks would volunteer to provide this service to the rest of
us (one per continent would be good, with maybe an extra one in the UK).

The WWW/hypermail archive seems to be pretty popular (from looking at
the access log).  It is super-simple to set up, but I don't have the
20-30 MB or so that it would take to process all of the old archives
and keep adding messages on a daily basis. It would also require
setting up a dummy account to receive mail (for which I do not have
authorization). I would be more than willing to provide technical
assistance to anyone wishing to offer this service.
