I don't mind.

>>The ancient machine running the GC mailing list appears to be down again. We'll try to resurrect it, but in the slightly longer term, we should really move the list to someplace that's better maintained, on real hardware, etc. Do you have
 any preferences? As far as I know, github doesn't provide a mailing list service, and gmane is only a gateway. Sourceforge does seem to provide mailing lists, and I think we still officially have a project there.
