No. You can pick up the substance of the matter by reading through some of
the links available at http://www.memra.com/ndbg.html  And if you want to
browse through a few of the list messages there is a list archive linked
off that page too.

95% of it is politics and the only thing that seemed to me to impact
operations was this plan to put competing nameservers at the XP's.
