1. Setting up a list is the biggest change. How do you start a list
without "opening it TO THE PUBLIC"?
2. In my posting I referred to a list that was very active and caused
problems because of the lock file problem. How does anyone, especially
a novice, test for that before the list is "open TO THE PUBLIC" in such
a way as to catch a problem caused by heavy activity?
3. There is no information in the documentation about "dry-running", and
running a list with just one subscriber is not much of a test.
