I should mention that the FSF gives GNU Mailman real support resources
(Stephen knows this).  For example, they have set up a donation fund where
folks can donate money to the project (USA) tax free, and they will disperse
the money as we direct them to.  They take a percentage fee for operating
expenses and to further the FSF's goals, but that's fine with us.  The fact
that we've never actually asked for any of the funds is our problem, not
theirs. ;)
