After pondering the options for a replacement, I've decided that it's time to move away from dedicated hardware toward cloud-based services, and to offload some of the sysadmin responsibilities to people who know what they are doing.

You will not need to resubscribe to the mailing lists, or change any list settings.  The lists will continue to use the Mailman software and web interface, and will work just as they have been.

Going forward, the archive URL will change as well, using the lists.febo.com domain.  That may impact search results until Google indexes the new site.  I'll maintain the existing archives as of the cutover date at the old URL to mitigate the problem.  Between June 15 and July 1, archive access may be a bit flaky.
> This change will improve the reliability of the mailing lists, and remove several single points of failure.  It should allow the lists to continue indefinitely into the future.  I hope that the transition doesn't cause you too much inconvenience.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me directly at jra at febo.com.
