Yeah, OT threads should be retitled immediately so as not to lose the initial discussion. It's annoying to skim the list digests when the subject lines don't match the content.

This is where I think things should always go ... to the wiki or the Floss manual! If a solution is found, pleasepleaseplease post it to a standard place and then *everyone* can benefit and we don't get the same questions every 6 months. Not everyone knows to search the mailing list. This is why I suggested a few weeks ago that we should look into building out "knowledge" base in a more centralized way because there are too many disparate elements ... I think newbies don't know where to look.
