It would seem appropriate at this time to suggest that we utilize a new
discussion forum in the form of a permaculture-mg sister mailing list
focusing on permaculture and sustainable agriculture principles. 
I am making available an unmoderated mailing list just for this purpose, 
sustag-principles. It is available now; subscription instructions follow.

Those that primarily want discussion of hands-on permaculture technology 
can have their way in permaculture-mg; those that want to discuss the 
social, political, religious, cultural and legal issues related to
permaculture and sustainable agriculture can use sustag-principles. 
These guidelines are flexible, of course - I'm just suggesting a way we can 
make our conferences more useful to all who read and post to them.

As with permaculture-mg, sustag-principles is now processed, htmlized
and made accessable in an indexed, threaded, chronological archive in my
permaculture homepage.

The location of these resources is near the top of my permaculture 
homepage: http://sunSITE.unc.edu/london/permaculture.html
