Sorry for the confusion. The temporary downtime of the REBOL mailing lists was caused by a technical problem on one of our machines that is not related to the discussion about moving the lists to a different location. It was just unfortunate timing that the problem happened right in the middle of that discussion, and during a weekend... The main REBOL mailing list should be up again. The ALLY and COMMAND lists are still down, but should be up again soon. We are working on it. For the time being, the lists are still at their usual location. Moving them to eGroups was just one idea, i.e. one out of several possibilities that we are considering. Carl asked on the list to find out if there were any major objections to this. We appreciate the effort you guys spent on creating new lists on eGroups, thinking about naming etc., and will take these suggestions into consideration. However, for the moment please stay on the usual, official REBOL mailing lists. Once a decision has been made if and how to move and/or rename the mailing lists we will make public announcements on each of the "old" lists. We will also, if possible, automatically migrate users to the new lists, so no un/resubscribe should be necessary. Again, sorry for the confusion and the downtimes. Things should be sorted our Really Soon Now :). -- Holger Kruse [holger--rebol--com]
