I find it interesting that this discussion took place about 1.5 years ago.


At that point there was some hesitation for splitting the lists, but 
there was some agreement that a Mailman list would be best.  Also, 
RedHat had agreed to host this.

Four years into setting up and supporting thin-client labs, HOSEF came 
to the conclusion that it would help to create a second mailing list for 
teachers.  There is, however, such hesitation to admit what you don't 
know that the list hasn't been used much.
