Just for information 'cause there seems to be people on this list that
don't know the background:

This list was created in the Helsinki University of Technology Lahti
Centre years and years ago as a result of some research projects done in
the small but efficient department of RP, RE and 3D-CAD research. At
this point I have to confess that I also used to work there, so I'm
propably the wrong person to call us efficient... Anyway - our research
team lost it's funding a few years ago and since then this list has been
run after normal working hours as a private "hobby" by Hannu Kaikonen
a.k.a. Rapid Dude. When the bytes get too mixed up and the wires are
more than crossed unix-guru "Zaphod" gives the list his magic touch.

So the fact that rp-ml didn't die with our research lab is the result of
Hannus personal will and countless hours to keep the rp-ml going. The
list is nowadays also funded by Hannu personally...

Maybe someday there'll be a rp-ml history on the web, but until then
this'll have to do.

My humble thanks to Hannu!
