Back in the early days of REBOL/View 1.3 development, we found it useful to mirror our AltME conversations to the REBOL.net website. This allowed more people to keep up on discussions - even those who did not have AltME accounts, and it's a lot more alive than the email list. It also had the benefit of being indexed by web search engines - which is often helpful to new users. And finally, it helps reduce the load on the AltME server for the REBOL3 world (which probably exceeded its original design capacity many months ago... I am surprised that the hard-disk has not caught fire ;)

So, should we do that again? The scripts already exist, so there's very little time required to make this happen (although we can add a bit more polish to them if necessary). Of course, we don't need to mirror every discussion group... just those that the REBOL army might find useful.
