RE: Level of traffic on Unicode List

Basis Technology would be willing and able to host a digested version of the
Unicode list, and can also host a searchable archive of the traffic, if
there is sufficient interest in having this done. Obviously if the UC
decides to make digests an option, this becomes moot.

Those who think having the option of the digest form can email privately:
I'll keep the "voting" open until the end of next week. Based on that
feedback I'll decided whether to go ahead with this project or not.

I'm sure Marion didn't intend to add yet another off-topic thread to
this mailing list, but I guess the toothpaste is out of the tube now.

A digest would be a nice option. I would probably not use it on this
list for the same reason as Jonathan: some messages I care about and
want to save, others I delete on sight. But on some other lists I
subscribe to, I prefer the digest mode because I want to archive all or
most of the messages and a digest is more convenient that way. The best
choice is to offer a digest mode and allow members to choose which one
they want.
