I 'd like to see something else in the address than groups.google.com
or similar.. Something.. Well, you know, more open source.

So I've mailed the osgeo-discuss mailing list (see
http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/discuss/2008-September/004317.html )
with no answer so far. I'll let you know if I get a reply. But I too
agree that the list would be a perfect match for their profile.
