A list must have at least two owners,
and at least one of these must belong to a HEAnet subscribing institution.
Please give both the email address and full name of each list owner.
If a list owner has more than one email address, you may wish to define "quiet" list owners;
see the List Owner's manual for more details.
If you would like to define more list owners, you may do so after the list has been set up,
by sending an email to email@example.com.

Anyone may subscribe to a public list; for other types of list subscribers may only be added by the list owners.

Determines who may retrieve information about a list, including its members.
Private means that only list members may retrieve this information;
owners means that only the list's owners can access it.
Because of the increasing incidence of unsolicited commercial email (spam),
we strongly recommend against setting Review = Public or Private.
6. Who can send information to the list *
Once the list is set up, you may wish to appoint moderators or editors;
check the List Owner's guide for information on how to do this.
Again, because of the rising incidence of spam, setting Send = Public is not recommended.
