While we appreciate the need for jobs postings, they easily overwhelm this small mailing list: So, you must submit them via e-mail to the listadmins, smaug-owner (at), who'll decide whether to post them. Reasons why the answer has been "no" in the past have included their having already been posted to other local LUG mailing lists. (We get tired of seeing the same posts everywhere.)

Per list policy, our (subscriber-accessible) membership roster and public message archives display unobscured posting addresses. If you're trying to hide your e-mail address from spammers, avoid this list.
