 Why the people is so limited?
 I'm susbcripted to another list where the list is the BOTH things AT THE SAME
TIME, if you want news ... you can use news, but if you DON'T have news, you
can use the mail list, each mail sent to the list appears in the news and each
new in the news go to the mailing list!!
 THAT'S ALL.

Let's see if this gets some consideration...

    Well,

    If we can get the listerv and newsgroup system to propagate the same
    material, then fine!

    Also as the comp.arch.embedded newsgroup already exists, should we not
    create a group called comp.arch.embedded.pic ?

    Scott.

I'd consider it under two conditions:

1) The newsgroup is moderated.
2) That some minimal moderation including the removal of spam and clearly
off topic posts is involved. Should be solvable with a robot moderator which
presents a couple of minimal hurdles to free posting into a newsgroup.

One should be fearful of having a newsgroup connected to one's mailbox
because it can be quite like being hit with a fire hose: lots of volume,
not a lot of control.

I'm game for anything that will facilitate the distribution of PIC related
issues, but not at the expense of lowering the signal to noise ratio to the
point of uselessness.

Actually I didn't suggest that the list forward to the newsgroup and vice versa
as
Salvador suggests. I'd rather see the newsgroup be independent and the PICList
be independent as well. The issue is that it takes different skills to deal with
mail
traffic versus newsgroup traffic, further newsgroups automatically expire
messages
whereas most people, thinking they will get back to them, leave their mailing
list
messages in their mailboxes somewhere. The second issue is that the newsgroup
will generate a lot of "What's a PIC" kind of questions that are really annoying
on PIClist but well suited to a newsgroup. So to reiterate my solution:

Someone (not me, I've not got the time) start the newsgroup process by sending
out a call for votes. (you may also want to simultaneously create an alt.pic
group)
after the mandatory voting, get the group established. Then those on this list
can
go read that newsgroup, if they choose, and see if they want to "hang out"
there.
