I'm not quite the webmaster, but I have been involved in updating the site.

Two of those three links mentioned in this discussion are on the web site
already:

1) In the navigation bar along the left side of every page on the site, the
top item is 'EVM2003' which describes the project and links to the EVM2003
home page and project page on SourceForge.

2) The 'FAQs' button, also in the nav bar, links to the FAQ.

We don't have a direct link to the mailing list archive, which I agree that
we need to add. Where would you suggest? Under 'history'? As an additional
item in the nav bar?

I'd also suggest that in order to increase visibility of these links, that
we mention them in the welcome message to the list, and suggest that people
review the FAQ before posting.

Hello David:

Hello David:

That's very good. Now all that has to be done is to have that added to the
links portion in the web page. It would be nice if the special google
search window also went along with the link. I forget who is actually the
web master for the OVC page but I think it's one of the board members.

Thanks, Ed Kennedy
