However, most of the PV-WAVE user discussion takes place on the
VNI Mailing List Forum, to which you can subscribe by sending
a message to majordomo@boulder.vni.com containing the the

IMHO there are a lot of good reasons to use PV-WAVE. This
is not the place to trot out a list.

Well, we could hold back the new product releases until
the documents are printed, but that would just annoy the
people who don't mind online documentation :-).
