Would be great! Wy don't we start with a special LIST for this purpose as a
start to come to an archive, accessable to the internet community! When a
publication appears, the autor can post the article to this list with a
standard subject description. Each member will receive the articles and can
import them in his own database!
When this is a good idea, I will prepare a LIST at SURFNET for this purpose.
I think the list must serve for these articles only, not for discussions.
Discussions can stay at TAXACOM.
