There's about 190 countries in the world. There'll be many national
mail lists & webs eg http://ccc.de & forums that discuss encryption
politics. Hopefully this list will Not, & stick to just the
international technology & ignore the politics & national laws, to
keep the traffic down, & keep it internationaly relevant. Not that
the politics might not be interesting for a while, but it could
easily bloat the list trafffic.
