The east-timor listerv distributes news and other items from a wide range of sources, including East Timorese groups, ETAN, TAPOL, and other support groups. Reports and translations from wire services and the East Timorese, Indonesian, Portuguese, Australian, British, and U.S. press also appear regularly, as well as official documents and statements from the U.N., national governments, and other sources. (East-timor began as a list server echo of a conference (newsgroup) called reg.easttimor and is sometimes known by that name.) Postings average 10-15 per day, although the frequency varies with the pace of East Timor-related events and coverage. Click here to subscribe.
