The move

Just to clarify a point I made in my earlier message, I was not
intending to solicit additional proposals for sites for the list server
for S-news. My point was that there is now a concrete proposal on the
floor for a move, and that if people wish to offer alternatives or
other desiderata, they should do the spadework required to make them
equally concrete (including determining willingness of the potential
site to take on the work). These ideas should go to the
s-news-move@verdi.stat.wisc.edu list; see Doug Bates's recent message
about subscribing to this list and accessing the archive.

I personally don't see the need for more alternatives, but read the
discussions that have taken place and decide for yourself. Once the
options have been refined on the discussion list, I expect that there
will be a summary of the arguments and a vote.
