With the volume of mail increasing and the fact that teleconferences
can't be attended by everyone, should we re-examine the idea of using

In talking with Keith Moore, it should have a feature where a subscriber

Does such a forum exist?
Should we use it?

We do have miniutes of all teleconferences, which helps a lot.
