I received today notification that reorganisation at OASIS
(it involves, inter alia, re-mapping of all the DNS
IP resolutions to a new physical site, which is one reason why
the transfer is occurring later than we all expected)   is now
largely complete.  OASIS were waiting for this before 
implementing the new list server.

I gather now that the new list is only days away from functioning,
at which  point  I will post details here of how to access it etc.

Meanwhile, I will summarise what we have done thus far

1. A complete list of subscribers as of  3 Jan was sent to 
OASIS in response to their request. This included the xml-dev-digest

2. I have continued to add new subscribers, and the  
details of the  150 people or so who have subscribed since then
have also been passed to  OASIS. 

3. You can continue to unsubscribe by sending a message to  majordom at
of the type

unsubscribe  xml-dev

PLEASE NOTE the message is sent to majordomo at  and NOT
to  xml-dev at If you send to the latter, it achieves nothing, and
merely irritates people (I might add that I often got comments regarding the
length of the signature file appended to this message, but since removing
unsubscription details in preparation for the transfer, the number of
incorrect unsubscriptions has ballooned! 

4. requests of the type sent to majordomo at

unsubscribe xml-dev your-subscribed-remail at your-subscribed-address   

are now UNMODERATED!   (They used to required my personal

I hope to pass on further news within a day or so.
