I'm not a big RSS fan myself (OK, so I've never used it), but I can see
this might be useful. Anyone working on a wily RSS client?

Bill

We made a new feature available today: syndication of all mailing lists via 
RSS feeds.  Visitors to the archives can track a list without having to be 
subscribed and without having to watch the archives manually.  RSS is popular 
in the Blog space, but it's quite useful and is popping up just about 
everywhere.

(If you'd like more info on the technical side, see this article: 
http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2002/12/18/dive-into-xml.html)

Any RSS aggregator (a few are listed here: http://blogspace.com/rss/readers) 
will do, and if you happen to be lucky enough to be using the Firefox web 
browser, you can even track feeds via its "Live Bookmark" feature.

The last 20 posts in each list archive are made available in the feed.  The 
feed for this list, for example, is available at 
http://www.freelists.org/archives/freelists-news/feed.rss


On a more general note, we hope to implement more features like this in the 
future.  If you have any suggestions on new features or ways to improve 
existing ones, do drop us a line.

Thanks,
  John
