I suggested to Eric Rasmussen:

> Try http://lists.linuxwimax.org/listinfo/wimax

Turns out, that was probably a bad suggestion, which I regret.  I didn't
know about the hitch, at the time:  The archive of back posts at
http://lists.linuxwimax.org/pipermail/wimax/ looked lively, but I
unfortunately didn't look more closely.  Here's an overview of one
recent month's postings:

Notice that about half to two-thirds of the postings are spam?  That's
what happens in the past couple of decades on the Internet, if you
create a mailing list and fail to restrict it to subscriber-only

Typically, when that happens, the mailing list is effectively killed and
gets overwhelmed by spam, and eventually abandoned.  Anyway, sorry about
the bum lead.
