When we learned this what YahooGroups was planning…
Protect the past and set up for the future
And we have a bunch of files. Now need to make them useful and replace YahooGroup functionality.
We had a list of all members on the YahooGroups list.
toku.usis a domain owned by Steve, it can be short for “TO Keep Up with US” (maybe?)
name email@example.com for Mailman
At this point, the email list was operational.
After it was deployed (put into operation), Steve made tweaks (fixes, improvements) to the configuration, for example:
We had a directory with zillions (figuratively) of files from presentations, want to make 'em available somehow
Using the current (new) system; you'll find the links here at the bottom of every email you get from the list.
LCTGfirstname.lastname@example.org(this can be you if you're not on the list, or a friend) and include
LCTGemail@example.com the email account you want to unsubscribe
Some more technical information for those with inquiring minds

After the email addresses were read into Mailman, Steve manually changed subscriptions for those banned and those getting a daily digest.
Here's what part of the LCTG Wiki page looks like (the table holding past and upcoming meetings)

The list administrator can make changes to the way the list operates and membership data. The user interface provides many pages grouped by function:

This shows that the archive isn't really useful as it stands.
