[gmx-users] optimizing the mailing list

I suggest that we consider ways in which the mailing list can be  
optimized. My initial thought is to allow submitters to flag messages  
as belonging to some particular topic(s).

"program crash"
"force fields"
"free energy"
"coarse graining"
"lipids and detergents"

Since the submission is by regular email and hence there is no  
possibility of introducing a radio box with topic options, this could  
be implemented by allowing any user to define the topic to which a  
particular message belongs. Ideally, the submitter would go to the  
website after submission and set the topic of their own submission.

If the archives then allowed a user to view only a particular topic,  
then this would offer an alternative to the search tool, and also a  
link to such a topical list could be posted in the relevant pages on  
the wiki.

I realize that the actual coding of such an interface may not be  
available at this time. But I suspect that somebody on this list knows  
some type of useful optimizations that are possible at this time.
