The new lists have been created and will have to be configured before
we will ba able to use them; I'll announce here when they are ready.
They are:

pcplantdb@ general
pcplantdb-tech@ technical
pcplantdb-data@ plant information

and another one created at the request of George Parlow;
a multilingual forum for European permaculturists:
pc-europe@

I'd be happy to create more lists for groups in other regions of the
world, i.e. pc-asia, pc-middleeast, pc-australia, pc-uk, pc-japan,
pc-russia. Permaculture in North and South America are covered by this
list.
