Group email (was Style of mail messages)

Like Peter (see "Style of mail messages") I've also been wondering
whether group mail traffic should be posted to this list, and considered
whether we needed separate group lists.

We didn't have group lists in last year's run, and I'm not sure whether
a) it's worth the effort of setting them up, and
b) appropriate to make archives of such group lists public

Most people will be able to work out how to construct a group list in
their mailer software, and should be encouraged to do so. Making use of
such a facility means that group messages remain private within the
group, and everybody who needs to can "hear" what's going on.

Anybody else got a view on this? Tutors, organisers?
