Hey all,
I'm member in another mailing-list, where the following behaviour is
standard: it's usal to use the prefixes Q for 'trara' Question, FYI stands
for 'For your interest', AW for 'Answer' AND S for 'Summary'.
The proceeding of posting a question is, that persons answer directly only
to that person, that posted the question and that person sends around after
finalizing the collection of answers to her/his question a Summary. That
makes it quite easy to follow the list postings.
Maybe we could introduce something similar?
regards from Hungary, Tanja

:: Another passing observation aimed at defusing the client / server
:: debate: W3C mailing lists are also available as "RSS feeds". These
:: feed URLs, in our case
::
:: 	http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-semweb-lifesci/feed.rss
::
:: ...can be put into newsreading software (desktop or web-based such as
:: www.bloglines.com) to give members of the community another way of
:: keeping track of discussions, without over-burdening their mailboxes.
::
:: http://dmoz.org/Reference/Libraries/Library_and_Information_Scien
ce/Technical_Services/Cataloguing/Metadata/RDF/Applications/RSS/News_Readers
/

...is a list of some RSS-reading software. It can be used to read this
newsfeed and many others, organised by topic, date, etc.

The W3C "feeds" for discussion lists aren't perfect, I think they could
be improved eg. in their handling of threads, but they may prove useful
to some folks here.

Hope this helps,

Dan
