The Drosophila community is very large and would undoubtedly benefit by the
formation of this newsgroup.

I only have a suggestion - about the proposed E-mail address - From the above
excerpt I gather that to post to the newsgroup from the US one would send to:
drosophi at (I presume that this was chosen because Drosophila
is longer than the 8 character maximum).

Might I suggest that it be merely dros at since most of
the drosophila community regularly abbreviates Drosophila to
Dros anyway.
