i've been chipping away at the user notes in the php manual. i was doing okay for a while in keeping up with newly submitted notes, but stopped for a week or two and before i knew it, several hundred had piled up for review. (unfortunately, it appears that zak and i are the only ones regularly keeping on eye on these things.) right now, there's 5797 notes. there were well over 6000 when i started.
i also flipped the switch on the non-subscriber self-moderation for the rest of the php mailing lists. hopefully this will cut down on the spam to the lists without resulting in more list admin work. one spam has already been blocked from php-general. whee!
