Please don't post to this group until the official announcement (already
sent to bionet.announce) appears and until the introduction by the group
discussion leader is posted. HOWEVER,
The reason for all these tests was due to an `alias' feature of the
NEWS<->email gateway caused by the NEWS heirarchy i.e.
This is the first time such a structure has existed on bionet (e.g.
the structure is different from bionet.molbio.x and bionet.molbio.y)
The gateway software has never (to our knowledge) caused any LISTSERV-type
(or other) bounces so we were loathe to apply any hasty patches to solve
the heirarchy problem [ergo the tests].
Having said that, some minor tweaking of headers may be necessary at this
end over the next few weeks but this will not affect routine operation of
Thanks once again for your forebearance.
