The info file is currently:

A mail server would only help those who don't have FTP access.  These
people are not likely to easily be able to get MacBSD either.  There
is a mail server in Germany:

from which you can get a fairly up-to-date FAQ by sending a message
with this line in the content:

  send /pub/mac/unix/MacBSD/FAQ

I don't know how often it is mirrored from cray-ymp.

If people think that a mail server for the FAQ would be useful on
cray, I can set one up.  Let me know.
