Good news!  I've convinced my news admin to set up the gateway.  What I'd
like to do now is have a fast informal vote on various possibilities.
Please vote on only one proposal.

Proposal 1.
  No gateway, let the mailing list die.
  Vote here if you are planning on reading the newsgroup and unsubscribing
  from the mailing list.  Note that there will be at least a one-direction
  gateway; I just wonder how may people won't care if it is there.

Proposal 2.
  Bi-directional gateway.
  Vote here if you have no USENET access whatsoever and want to use the
  mailing list as an interface to the newsgroup

Proposal 3.
  One-directional gateway. (from mailing list to newsgroup)
  Vote here if you can read USENET, but not post, or if you want the
  mailing list to become a small subset of the newsgroup, so you won't
  have to read the newsgroup.

Proposal 4.
  One-directional gateway plus newsgroup archiving under the Web.
  Vote here for a compromise between Prop 2 and Prop 3.

Proposal 5.
  One and a half directional gateway.  Articles are sent from mailing
  list to newsgroup.  Digests of articles are sent from newsgroup to
  mailing list.
  Vote here if for reasons I can't imagine.  Well, maybe if you
  are a uucp site, with no USENET or Web access.  Yuck.
