updated lynx-dev welcome msg

From: Philip Webb
Subject: updated lynx-dev welcome msg
Date: Wed, 13 May 1998 13:00:20 -0400 (EDT)

at Al Gilman's suggestion, i have updated the message which welcomes
new subscribers to lynx-dev (the old one is badly out of date).
i have laid it out carefully line by line (in my usual fussy way),
to make it as clear as possible to someone who may be quite new
to the whole concept of lists & Lynx (as i once was).
i hope it will be substituted for the present message.  here it is:

Welcome to the lynx-dev mailing list!

Please save this message for future reference:

lynx-dev is an e-mail list where Lynx users, site managers & developers
exchange information; it covers UNIX, VMS, DOS, Win32, OS/2 & Mac versions.
lynx-dev is a very busy list, with many contributors & topics:
some discuss very technical programming & system problems,
some find it a good way to learn about Internet software issues,
some are users who kibbitz & make comments & suggestions,
some just dip into occasional items which interest them.
It's very much an international volunteer community.

There are archives of lynx-dev at :
