First, congratulations and kudos to Ken!  It's been less than a week 
since we got the message about improving our listening.  One of the 
primary complaints now, thanks to Ken, has a first cut at an 
improvement.  Thanks Ken!

Remember though: we're all part of a _group_ now that is shouldering the 
responsibility for improving the zope.org experience.  Ken has stepped 
up with something.  Hopefully this will incent some others to step up as 

Places to contribute:

   o Help manage the various collectors and trackers

   o Pitch in with Seb on site (re)organization

While it's slow, it's something we'll have to live with.  IMO, giving 
people an ability to find (and disable) their mailouts is too important. 
  So you've done it the right way.  We'll just have to look into the 
performance problem (which Martijn was doing yesterday with ChrisM).
