[chairs] Mailing List changes rolled out

I'm writing this message as a heads up to some changes rolled out this week to
mailing lists.  Certain members have been having trouble posting to mailing
lists due to their companies utilizing a technology called BATV, or PRVS.  
Our mailing list software has been modified as follows to assist these

Since BATV or PRVS mplementations modify an outgoing message's "Return-Path:"
header to authenticate potential bounces,  the software we use to manage our
mailing lists was not properly recognizing those messages as coming from a
valid poster address.  The newly modified version will base the acceptance of
a message posting on the "From:" address, instead of the "Return-Path:" from
now on.

I just want to make sure everyone is aware of this change so that if you see
problems with people posting to the lists, please report them to me.  I
strongly doubt there will be any noticeable impact at all, but
wanted to ensure that people were at least aware of this change happening.
