I think the default is that if you cc someone on a message and that
person is already subscribed to the list, the list software won't send
the list message to them. There's an option in the settings to turn
off "disable duplicates". So we can all just use

Yet again, I still need a list of committee member e-mails to add to
the committee mailing list before anything is sent to it. Right now
there are only 2 people subscribed.
There is not a method of avoiding duplicates in messages are sent to
all the lists. We could create yet another list just for
announcements, but perhaps it would be better for such important
messages to be posted to the TEITAC calendar and announcements page.
Very important announcements can be sent to the subcommittee lists.
Either way works for me.

Yes, only someone subscribed to a list can post to it. And we can set
any list to be moderated. I can set anyone up as moderator. If
moderated, all messages will be held until a moderator allows them.
This should be done on an announce list, if we decide we need one.
The only list that has any rules is the committee list - I'm
moderating subscriptions so only committee members and alternates can

There isn't yet, but it can be created.

OK. I'll leave it as is.
