New lists should be announced (and requested) through 
sysadmins(at)postgresql(dot)org ... it is not a web related activity, nor 
maintained by the Web Team :)

Also, it should be announced to pgsql-announce if you want to get broader 
distribution ...

Let me know ... I've always done config changes through command line 
myself ... I believe you can also do this through email, but I really 
don't know how the syntax for *that* works, although, if you find that 
that might be useful, I can figure it out and let you know ...

Ah, see, that would explain it ... I'm not on pgsql-www, since I don't 
have anyting to do with Web related activities ... mail server related 
requests should go through sysadmins(at)postgresql(dot)org, where I am subscribed 
... that would explain why I never saw that request :(

And make sure you send your requests to the right mailing list :)

mail != www, therefore not relevant to pgsql-www ...
