While perhaps a good idea, honestly the only things to go through
sysadmin on a regular basis are system notifications from scripts
(just check the archives).  To assume that sysadmin is any more
functional than the rest of evolt.org would be an overstatement.  I
just point this out as it has been mentioned in the past that
sysadmin, as a group, "just works".

My assumption on evolt.org's floundering due to lack of leadership has
been based on past history.  How much has evolt.org advanced since
2002?  FFS, *we* couldn't even pick a winner of the "design contest"
and implement it.  Most projects have at the very least a benevolent
dictator and people that are willing to follow that person.

Anyway, I don't mean to de-rail the current efforts.  I'm going back
to re-arranging the deck chairs.
