This is now done.  I've had to make a few minor other adjustments, such
as removing this paragraph near the end of the Q&A section:

   <br>However, times have gotten hard again, so we're returning to the
   old policy.  Officers must approve postings.  <br>&nbsp;

Also, this part of the final Q&A item, which had concerned the
justification for the submit-via-the-officers policy, and under what
conditions the policy might be changed:

   <br>&nbsp;<br>Most recently (switching to allowing jobs) &mdash;
   enough members asked for this service, or asked why we didn't have it.
   <br>&nbsp;<br>Before that, we had too much work and took too much flak
   &mdash; from good posters who were approved late because of the total 
   traffic, from bad ones who were denied, and occasionally by list 
   members whose concept of 'spam' is much further beyond the norm than 
   the principles our officers follow.
   <br>&nbsp;<br>When it is more of a strain than a member benefit, we will
   stop approving jobs, and we will change the policy to say so.

With cessation of the submit-via-the-officers policy, that section is
no long applicable.

I've also slightly modified the questions in the Q&A section to clarify
that they refer to the _main_ svlug@ list.

Cheers,                           "This is Unix.  Stop acting so helpless."
