First, sorry for the extremely slow reply. I lost the message in the
moderation noise and "I'll answer that tomorrow" (and tomorrow, and
tomorrow, and...).

I think this is correct. There might be some magic with permissions and
copying the list, but it's been a while since we moved a list
around. When you get the account set up for the club, I will decipher
the arcane scrolls ("documentation") and do whatever sysadmin magic is

I don't think we actually ever worked this out. I will scour the board
archives for previous discussion, but I think for informal organizations
your best bet is to have a responsible person for the group sign up for
the group. Bt and I are trying to ditch a linode vps for another
organization with a similar non-structure, so we need to work this out
any way since that's a bit less than ideal.

<RetroJ`> here's something interesting about one of these chinese
          pop music videos I've found.. it illustrates the
          cultural barrier nicely.  this young female pop star is
          wearing a t-shirt with the confederate flag
