Hi Joe, Pete,
Joe, both Pete and myself are subscribed to seul-pub so we don't need an
(2nd copy). Personally I'm ambivalent, I can go with either a CLI or GUI.
there are cases where one has no choice but to use the CLI. Also if one is
running a
firewall machine they should probably only use a CLI. My real interest is
in trying to
make things happen, thus I extracted what I thought was pertinent.
Basically, Joe
wants a CLI mailing-list and for this one needs a server. I suppose
initially one could
use seul-pub since it's usually low traffic and gets used for all sorts of
things. Joe if
you wish to subscribe it's majordomo@seul.org with " subscribe seul-pub" in
the body
of the message. Next we need to put together a paragraph describing the
role of the
CLI mailing-list. Joe would you be willing to do this or do you want me to
make a draft
for you to edit. Then we'll need a list of places to post the notice such
as Linux user
groups, the Linux list and other sites where Linux users lurk. SEUL should
have such a
list anyway for situations such as this. Pete how difficult would it be to
put up a simple
web page somewhere on the SEUL site. Joe would you be willing to share your

'makecdr' with the world. It sounds like it would save others a significant
amount of
time not having to reinvent the wheel. Finally I wrote this because I
believe that rather
than sit and hope something happens one can make it happen.
