I don't think there's a serious problem w.r.t. volume or junk for
those accessing bionet.software via news readers, but I suspect those with
email subsciptions, and those who check this group primarily for announcements
of software releases and upgrades, would greatly appreciate the creation of a
bionet.software.avail and corresponding email list.
Hopefully, it would become the place where all of the biology-related
software archives and software developers post announcements of new software
