I also think the archives would be useful.

Subject: List archives
To ISO 639 Joint Advisory Committee:
I mentioned at our meeting that we could make the archives of this list
available so that we can go back and review previous discussions. This is
done by using a Web interface to the messages that are archived monthly by
the Listserv software. It would allow you to browse the message by month.
For an example see:
However, the software does not allow for the archives to be restricted,
other than restricting it to Library of Congress users, which obviously
won't work for our list. We can sort of hide the archives by not linking
to the files from elsewhere or giving out the URL, but anyone could find
out the URL if they wanted to and then access them. So the question is:
Do you want these archives available to the committee even though anyone
potentially can see them?
I suppose the biggest issue is discussion on specific proposals and
voting. I would like to get some feedback from our committee, so please
respond to this message.
Note that if you do send a message to this list, you will not receive a
copy of that message unless you change your options as follows:
Send mail to: [log in to unmask]
with text: set isojac repro
Do not use ANY other text in the message. The default for the list is NOT
to receive copies of your own messages, but you can change that if you
want as above.
