I didn't know until you two told me just now.
Can we have a link in the doc?

It's not that I *cannot* use email or that I *have to* rely on web
applications, but that we all are more productive with the tools that we
use more often. It's also the fact that the skarnet maillist signup process
is rife with bugs due to how few people use it. I had to overcome three
various bugs to send my first email, and was only able to do so because I
reached out repeatedly over the course of several hours.

I realize I'm unlikely to persuade you, so I'll just say I'm happy enough
to keep doing it your way, but I'm fairly certain that it's not in your
best self-interest. The only reason I care at all is because I'd like to
see s6 have a more diverse set of committers, which is a fair heuristic for
project health and maturity.
