    The new list is being put through trial runs; almost all the posts and
    discussion are of a casual nature where the full experience of the Nav-l
    list does not need to be engaged for assistance. The point is to get
    familiar with the technological differences between a classic mailing-list
    and the newer Google platform as well as to probe the new list for
    reliability and to see what features might make it easier to use. There is
    no attempt to match either the quantity or quality of traffic on Nav-l
    because all are hoping that the problems with Nav-l can be understood and
    solved. If the problems persist, however, then there might come a time
    when some participants begin to move their substantive posts to the new
    list as they lose confidence in the integrity of Nav-l. Allegiance and
    loyalty might be an issue when that comes to pass, but that time is not
    upon us yet.
