Margaret, the big problem with digest format is that Mailman sends them
out whenever there's enough accumulated traffic since the last one.
Since the web-team mailing list has, in general, really low levels of
traffic, that can take a long time.

Currently, Mailman has web-team set up to send out a digest whenever
there's been 30 KB of postings.  I believe that is (probably) the
Mailman default setting, though I wouldn't swear to that.

I could reduce the size Mailman will trigger a new digest mailing on,
but then people might complain about too-frequent digests.  ;->

Looks like the only digest subscribers at the moment are you, Paul
Reiber, and Aniruddha Mulay, by the way.

You might wish to consider changing your subscription to regular,
non-digest format, which you can do by logging into your mailing list
preferences at http://lists.svlug.org/lists/listinfo/web-team .

I personally never use Mailman digest mode, because of the above-cited
inherent problem.

(I'm going to CC you so that you don't have to wait months to get 
_this_ posting!  ;->  )
