The web interface is a bit clunky, and it doesn't keep track of what 
I've already looked at.  Sure, it is fine for searching, but not really 
for browsing.

My typical approach to mythtv-users is to browse it to see what is going 
on every once in a while.  With the mailing list version that means I 
have 1-10k messages in my folder which can be a bit daunting to handle. 
  With a digest I'd lose threading which would be a real pain for 
anything I did want to read into.

It just seems like this is exactly the sort of problem that newsreaders 
were designed to solve.

In any case, I'm not quite sure what harm using gmane would cause?  Even 
if only three people would ever look at it, it isn't like it will cause 
problems.  Again, I'm fine with making the list unidirectional if spam 
is a concern.
