[Trying to understand how it works] To do that, if I'm correct, we would have to define a property set for mailing lists, where articles would be nodes, header fields would be properties of these nodes, the "References" header field would be used for links to other articles, and the "contents" would be the body of the article, which could contain links. Then the formatting could be done with DSSSL and Jade to produce an on-line archive. Is this a correct description of how groves could be used in the real world ? It does not seem very difficult. -- Thierry Bézecourt
