As many on the list have commented, the volume of list traffic has become
such that it can be a real distraction when your mailbox is flooded with
20 to 30 or more si-list messages.

In an attempt to address the issue, a digest version of si-list is now being
made available on an experimental basis.

So now you have a choice of receiving the real-time version (as you always have),
the digest version (one e-mail containing multiple list messages), or both
(though I don't know why you would want that).

Subscription to one form or another is not mutually exclusive. That is,
subscribing to the digest does NOT automatically turn off your subscription
to the real-time version.

If you wish to sign up for the digest version and terminate your real-time subscription,
here is the procedure:

1) Send an e-mail message to majordomo@silab.eng.sun.com
        
        In the BODY: unsubscribe si-list
        
        
        
2) Send another e-mail message to majordomo@silab.eng.sun.com
        
        In the BODY: subscribe si-list-digest
        
        
The digest version will be sent out once daily at 5 pm pacific standard time ( GMT - 0800)
or possible more often when the number of lines in the digest exceeds a preset limit
(currently 200, but subject to adjustment).

All traffic sent to the list (si-list@silab.eng.sun.com) will be repeated in the real-time
mode and also captured and relayed to si-list-digest subscribers.

To summarize:

        You may subscribe to the real-time version
        You may subscribe to the digest version
        You may access the list archives (http://www.qsl.net/wb6tpu)
        
        
The new configuration is still experimental so there may be a few latent bugs in the
system, but hopefully it will function as described.
