Yes, thanks. I knew about the posts.
However, after adding the subject line, we have not asked people if
they are really happy with it. 

For me it has (minor) drawbacks and my mail system is powerful
enough to sort mails after several criteria. Standard for
mailinglists is to have a header line which allows relyable
identification. A fix header line works a lot better than identifying
posts from the list after cc: or to: or strings in the subject line.

For the people interested, I am using the following procmail recipe
to filter mails to this list right now:

#grass user list
*^Sender: owner-GRASSLIST at baylor.edu

If nobody really needs the subject line I would like to see it removed. 
If somebody feels better with it, so be it. ;-)
