Hi Tobbe!

I find trapexit.org very useful, and use it frequently for exploration 
of forums.  It offers search speed much superior to the one at the 
mailing list site, and is a prominent time-saver.  I also believe many 
people find the "How-To" section useful.

Perhaps if several people volunteered for helping you with 
administration, the site could live?  How about doing something similar 
to how jungerl.sourceforge.net is managed - having several admins 
covering site updates...

Regards,

Serge
