Does anyone know where the list of recognisable embedded commands for this
mailing list can be found?

Well, the web admin page, as listed below, at, contains the options. There aren't many, though.

The web page refers to a FAQ, but doesn't give a link to one.

        Hmm??  A CVS FAQ?  I'm not aware of one.

Other mailing lists I subscribe to provide such things as '--LongSig' to
truncate long, corporately applied signatures from the end of mails (hence
I apologise for mine). They also provide commands for obtaining re-sends of
all messages in a thread or a list of messages with certain text in iether
the subject line or message body (helps to stop from posting the same
question as the group spent 3 weeks arguing over a short while previously).

All you get here is FTP hosted monthly archives. Welcome to the old school!

        Oil, meet Water.  Water, Oil.  I'm sure you'll be great friends.

England, meet Digital Age. Digital Age, England. I'm sure you'll be great friends.


(Sorry. Sometimes I just can't help myself. But Mr. Grenyer's siggy had me in the mood, and you pointed it out...)
