At this point, krb4 protocol questions might best be served on the
kerberos@mit.edu mailing list, as it is likely to constitute a minimal
part of the traffic there.

Also, krb-protocol is the contact point for some of the current
internet drafts concerning Kerberos.  krb-protocol is quite a stale
list.  It seems that a number of current subscribers to it have
bouncing addresses, which I should get rid of at some point.

There is precedent for moving an IETF WG list formerly hosted at MIT
to an off-campus location and making the MIT list point to the new
list.  The cat-ietf list did this at some point.

This is also true... the MIT mailhubs have this bad habit of not
rewriting the envelope-from address to something reasonable, after all
these years.
