The list is intended mainly to allow Linux users in B.C. to share information of local interest. Topics not covered well by existing newsgroups (such as Linux in Amateur Radio and scientific computing using Linux) are also welcome. (UBC Amateur Radio Society has its own page at http://www.ve7ubc.ampr.org/)
In July 1998, the list had just under 150 subscribers.
There is also an archive of the mail digest at http://www.gweep.ca/~edmonds/linux/VanLUG/ml-archives/
