OK, one very prompt volunteer, thank you.

Can I please have one other for the linux-aus list?

You don't have to be a genius, just stable, dependable and reasonably 
well known to the LA community.

The list manager is MailMan, and all you'll ever do is use a web browser 
go down a list of suspect messages, clicking "Discard" on almost all of 
them, "Approve" on an average of maybe 3 or 4 a month, and "Reject" 
plus type a reason for maybe 2 a year. If anything more complicated 
than that is required, or if you're not sure about a particular 
message, just bump the problem to one of the more experienced list 

Cheers; Leon
