First of all, a big thank you for all your efforts, Seppo. Being on
rp-ml was and is always an enjoyable experience. I'm member since ...
uhm ... 1995?

Moving the list to the RepRap server might be an option. They already
run two or three mailing lists there, so an existing infrastructure
can be assumed. RepRap isn't a dedicated non-profit organisation,
still it's at least driven by a multitude of commercial entities and
also a lot of hobbyists, so it's independent to some extents.

Because I can't decide on that I took the freedom to Cc: the reprap-
admin list.
