I have been wanting to set up a redistribution list.

I have asked the {sun-spots,sun-managers} folks for advice on how to do it,
or how not to do it, or whether it should be done at all. I never got
a reply. [I'm not angry; I realize that the list-maintainers have limited
time for a huge and sometimes thankless job]

I wonder if, now that the need for advice is more apparent, someone might
explain the do's and don'ts of setting up redistribution lists?

I will summarize anything sent to me. (please note the funny Reply-To header;
it separates the wheat from the chaff).

Thanks in advance, and seriously, thanks even more to those list maintainers!!!
