I spent some time chasing my tail on htis issue. Either the site should be corrected or if it is no longer maintained perhaps it should be taken down.

Thank you John.

It looks like the archiving of tex-eplain@tug.org is
broken, although we can continue to send/get
email from this address.  I've sent a message to Denis
Girou (mentioned on the tug.org lwgate as the contact)
to see what's wrong.   

I've recently put eplain 2.8.1 on CTAN.  I am also
aware from messages on comp.text.tex by John Culleton
and Robin Fairbairns that the situation is
unacceptable.  If a quorum (of sorts) here agrees that
http://www.cs.rice.edu/~dorai/eplain should to be taken
down and has a transfer plan, I will comply with
good cheer.  

Since eplain 2.8.1 is safely on CTAN now, I guess all I
need to do is erase all the eplain-related files from
my website.  In case transitional help is needed, I
will email in detail with whoever wants to take

My address is ds26@gte.com, if the tex-eplain@tug.org
the address should also conk out.
