Hi all.  I would just like to make one brief suggestion.  I suggest that 
the official site is not in the US.  There are legal reasons for this.  My 
understanding of most European copyright law is that you can make copies of 
material, such as TV scripts, for your own personal use as long as it isn't 
sold.  In the US, this is illegal and hosting this material is just asking 
for trouble.  If the main site is a non-US site, that would not be as much 
of an issue.  Whoever ends up hosting the official site should keep this in 
mind.  I don't think it would matter for the mailing list.
