[Xmca-l] Re: LSV versus ANL



OK, nix the emoji's. :X

As far as THE WORK, I would be willing to help, as offered earlier!

30 years at 300 baud is a very long time (tm).

How would a project like this manifest, were it to manifest in the most IDEAL way?

I do not now about the emoji's, but the other ideas all seem to have merit.
The question is, who will do the work? Having begun 30 years ago, the list
has a certain fusty old structure and set of practices. When we started,
the big new thing was a 300 baud modem.

It would be great if we had a small volunteer assistance committee to
implement facilitating ideas. But one retiring (as in shy) old guy is not
going to get it done(!). I could facilitate if there were helping
hands/minds.

For now, reverting the what is available at LCHC dot ucsd dot edu (which is
a lot!), the XMCA data base there which includes a lot of classic
materials, and relying on the willingness of others to help (for example,
Martin's 2008 article, which I had forgotten, is a good source) will have
to do.

If you do not have access to articles suggested, ask if someone else does.
With 800+ people
getting this discussion, someone is likely to have just what you want.
