I don't have a problem w/ the velocity of odb-users, but do have a problem
with a couple of the other mailing lists that I subscribe to.
(Digest doesn't make it much better either.)

So I'm attempting to get all of my mailing list subs as RSS feeds.

I too looked to see if GNU Mailman provided RSS feeds, but no one
has provided one.  (I'm actually amazed, as I think this would be
extremely useful.  And would be a logical function for the archiver
to perform.)

This is a good point.  It is not as easy as a simple email reply.
Of course since I use digest mode, you have almost always responded
before I even see the question.  ;)

This is how I have handled the other mailing lists I subscribe to.
I had not realized that I could simply request a new list to be tracked.
That will work for me.  Thanks.
