[mesa-users] Seeking community input on MESA's web presence

while not an active daily user of MESA, I follow the email discussions 
with great interest (even the mails on the technicalities are much more 
interesting than SPAM or boring admin mails), something that would 
certainly not happen if I were to be obliged to go and search in 
documents or on a Twiki-type info channel. FAQ lists are always useful. 
But I am not the main customer you should aim at, so the intensive users 
should have the decisions in hand.

Best regards,
