OK, thanks.

Just to reconfirm something I said the very first time this came up,
SVLUG solves the problem totally transparently to the members, as

1.  The svlug-announce@lists.svlug.org has as one of its members
(subscribed addreses) the address svlug@lists.svlug.org, which is the
posting address of SVLUG's main discussion mailing list.

2.  The configuration for the mail discussion mailing list's setting
"Privacy options", "Recipient filters", "Alias names (regexps) which
[sic] qualify as explicit to or cc destination names for this list" has
fill-in field "svlug-announce".

The result is that anything posted to svlug-announce goes to direct
members of that mailing list _and_ (through rebroadcast) to all members
of the svlug@lists.svlug.org mailing list.

At the time I suggested do likewise, I was told (here) that it was not
possible to do it without problems.  

Guess what?  It's been working at SVLUG continuously since 1998 without
problems -- and without need to run special auto-add scripts to
subscribe anyone to SVLUG's -announce list.
