I have two points here: 

1) Autoseqs mailing list was not a "mainstream" bionet/BIOSCI group, 
   and therefore did not have the advantage of the "advertizing" the 
   other groups have.

2) I think the volume of Autoseqs was sporatic, at best.  One would
   see "peaks" of activity.  I think "automated sequencing" of any
   DNA deserves it's own group, and will get a large readership over
   the next few months.

this topic will be of little interst to the sequencers of non-human
DNA, another reason for a seperate group for sequencers vs
genome.human.chromosome group.
