In reply to Alan Mills comments on Group mail

a) I think a group alias address would make private group mail easy
and that's obviously useful. I've set my own up, but it could easily get
out of sync.
b) I think being able to see what other groups are doing is
useful and I think that the Thymine group's activity may well have
stimulated others. I found it useful.

So I would like to see Group lists - then hopefully everyone can benefit
from the activities, if they want to. I can't see that any of the group
communications are likely to be 'private' private only 'trivial' private.
So I'd like to see the Group list address in the Group alias so the other
groups can browse around the messages.

And then everyone needs to think about where they send really private info
(probably best not to an alias anyway).
