One message I sent to the list sort of bounced back to me as "awaiting 
moderator approval".  I assume this is what would happen if a non-subscriber 
were to post to the list.  I asked on the channel, and I don't recall the 
reply verbatim, but I remember getting the impression that our one moderator 
was awfully busy and may not get to the message any time soon.  Maybe more 
than one of us should be moderators, and maybe we should have one or more 
ways of being notified when a message is pending moderation.

Alternatively, we could open the list.  It's not such a high traffic list, and 
it might be worth the experiment.  What does everyone else think?
