Nope, but we should. I'm inclined to say that the only list that should
really be linked is the ohs-dev list for now, although we can link the
unrev-ii list under a "History" page or something. There's just so much
stuff on the other list, I don't know whether the raw archives would be
useful for anyone other than historians, although when we finish our
addressability capability for e-mail, we can certainly link to messages in
that archive from any document.

Wish we had these pages in the first place. :-) We have to create them,
and when we do, we'll definitely link to WIKI. I've got to say that
although I was initially down on WIKI (and I'm still not crazy about it),
it's a useful scratch pad for collaboratively working on design
information, and it's a great experiment for working out a methodology for
the OHS to support.

We should have two pages of links. One, an unfiltered page of potentially
interesting links to which anyone can contribute. Two, a very focused
list of articles that are directly pertinent to what we are currently
doing. This page should be moderated.
