Somebody requested that this list be added to the gmane.org mail-to-news 
gateway and archive (thanks whoever you are!)

I found the gmane system of browing lists via NNTP & HTTP to be 
sufficiently useful that I contacted the admins and arranged for the 
full biocluster mailing list archive to be imported into their system.

Full info is appended below.

The news and web urls in the appended message are incorrect, the correct 
ones are:

Web interface to the list

News interface

I'll sort out with the gman admins if we are supposed to be ".clusters" 
or ".bioclusters"
