It's exciting for me to get an email from Italy. Everyday I watch 90

Cipollini crash, but I'm glad that Pantani is in the top ten.

As you may know, he started GNU:

I just looked at my Welcome to the GRASS GIS Users List message and 
noticed that it came from: "CREN ListProc(tm) Version 8.2" 
<listproc at baylor.edu>
This means that Grass GIS uses CREN ListProc rather than GNU Mailman.

With GNU Mailman it's possible to password protect web archives and 
allow non-members to search them. Everyone must enter a generic 
username and password to search the web archives. Example: 

I believe that both GNU Mailman and CREN ListProc support built-in 
web-based archiving as well as hooks for external archivers such as 
MHonArc (Apple uses MHonArc).

The question is: Can ListProc's web archives be password protected 
and continue to allow public searches?

GNU Mailman features:

External web-based archiver, MHonArc:
