Sure, feel free to fill in their add form.  But if you want Gmane to
import the archives, don't fill in the add form; ask us to do it
instead.  Note that this might require more steps than a usual Gmane
archives import, as ourproject.org is the list host, so we might have
to ask them for a tarball of the archives.

Alessandro and I are the list co-admins.  If Vegard wants to take over
list co-adminship from Alessandro, that's fine with me; in fact, I
think it's a good idea, since I have so little time for
Vimpulse-related tasks.  I suggest that he phone me at +1 (416)
992-3445 between 11AM and 11PM Eastern Standard Time (Toronto time) to
set a password.

Štěpán, if Vegard doesn't reply within two weeks, you can be my list
co-admin instead.  Phone me.

Mailman requires that all list co-admins must know one shared
password.  I don't like that but don't want to bother writing to the
Mailman folks.
