Dear corpora subscribers,
(I sent this message last week to corpora-request, but nobody answered)
I think I am not the only corpora subscriber who is a bit annoyed by the
increase of email traffic on this list, for the last few months and
especially the last week. A moderated list would not be a solution, because
it would seriously
threat the open discussion character of the list.
There is a solution though, the corpora list could move to a mailing list
offers a digest mode (a perodic summary of the messages on the list). Or
route the current mailing list into a digester. People who like
living in the fast lane can stay tuned to the current list, people that do
besides managing their inbox could subscribe to the daily digest.
I found some information about list servers:
gives an overview of mailman (open source) and listserv, both packages
offer a digest mode and a lot more.
Even Majordomo (the current corpora list server) seems to
support a digest mode:

-- Wessel Kraaij, TNO-TPD
