On Feb 5, Michele Foster had something to say about [thesite] The Headlines...

>(5)  Registration page on weo .. we need to add this list as an option (I

i think it's possible only through a hack: cf creating a POST to the
submission page with the new submission command (emulating someone
submitting the form on the leo submission page)

>(7)  Are we going to have archives for this new list ?  I don't really see

no archives. if there's a reason to create them later, we can run the
archive util off of teh .mbox file, i think. no use wasting space with the
html version until we decide we need it.

>(8)  Somewhere on weo .. we need to add a "want to know when this site is

i dont' agree with this. i think it implies that if you dont' get a
headlines mailer, the site hasn't changed. a drawing feature on our site
is the discussions in comments. what it should really say is "want to know
when new articles are posted". and why should this be duplicated on a
place other than the account page? i think the checkbox onthe account page
will be enough.

>That's all I can think of at the moment.  One final question .. is the new
>list called theheadlines ???  or was another name more appropriate.

theheadlines. :)
