Will the digest version of the kernel list EVER get fixed?

Being that similar functionality can be obtained through the many
sites that archive and/or make the high volume mailing lists available
via web or netnews interfaces, plus I am now engrosed in full time
development at SGI this summer, no they will not be fixed. And as a
pleasant side effect, this decreases the load on vger.

Summary: Digests is not good for vger's health, acquire big chunk
sized samples of the list via other means please.
