I am not a user of OpenSCAD or its mail list and feel guilty that I have rather subverted MichaelAtOz's topic from his rather more specific query, which also needs a response from Nabble.
I do feel that the change to wording to that archive would help both new administrators and ordinary users if applied to Nabble's core code. I feel it better covers an often misunderstood technical aspect of archives and while leaving archive owners able to add further detail about their individual mail list through the description field.
