Yes - wasn't sure which of 3 mailing lists I got that from (I'm probably
subscribed to all of them).

I meant the mailing list, but also some of the associated pages at scipy.org
(not .net, sorry; what's the difference anyway?). I used to be able to get to
the archives from scipy.org. I eventually found the page at
http://projects.scipy.org//mailman/listinfo/astropy, but as you say the link
to the archive no longer works and neither does the "astropy" wiki page at
http://www.scipy.org/wikis/topical_software/Astronomy.

So - sorry - it obviously works, but I wondered whether it had stopped
functioning or I had somehow dropped off it, since I wasn't receiving
messages and couldn't get to the archive.

Also, wouldn't it be a good idea to include an entry under 
http://scipy.org/Mailing_Lists?

Yes, I also have a *real* question for the astropy or numpy lists, but I need
to do a bit more investigation before posting :-).

Cheers,

James.
