yes, on my TODO list it is not supposed to last -- but, hey smester

tree, all of the breakage I know of are fixed.  I hope to do a "fix"
commit today (late).

that is then a real breakage I have not seen.  Thanks for pointing out.

I would like to see the Axiom-testresults list require less stringent
subscription rules.  It is there for encouraging people to send build
logs, test results for Axiom -- they are not required  to read or
receive message from that list.  It is mainly useful for us
developers.  I understand the spam issue; I feel there ought to be a
way to handle it without requiring people to subscribe.  At GCC, we
manage to have all lists (except gcc-announces) freely open to people,
yet the spam rate is very very low.

| You are listed as a full project administrator for Axiom on Sourceforge:

yes, but last time I wanted to approve my own message (from my TAMU
account), I was told (by the list manager) that only tim has an admin
privilege and knows what the passowrd is.  I should have made that
point earlier.

and I don't know what others are.
