ALGTOP-L: Algebraic Topology mailing list.

This mailing list began as a discussion group in July 1995, and was converted to an automated moderated listserv in Sept 2007. It was originally created and hosted by Don Davis at Lehigh University, until Oct 2023, when it was tranfered to this site. It is now managed by Charles Rezk at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, with the assistance of others.
