It's not just a matter of glitches, or what's wrong.  For example, I
suffer because I have to post from two different addresses, and therefore
must sign up twice.  However, there is no way to set one of the addresses
"nomail".  Consequently, I get every posting twice.  I redirect them
to an xml-dev folder and delete every other message before reading,
but it's annoying and error-prone to do that.  Every other listserv
software I know of supports "nomail" or the equivalent.

The inadequacy of the archive software, which loses messages and then
finds them again, emits badly borked HTML, and is otherwise annoying,
is well documented on this list (or would be if we had working archives!).

OASIS has chosen for reasons of its own to use substandard
listserv/archive software.  We should choose for that reason not to use
OASIS.  And when the director has in effect told us "ite, missa est",
we should do what he says.
