I like the list just as it is now, so that would be my vote. :)

It’s still my go-to place for anything web-publishing-related.

Of course, even on a new server I can leave the list "as is", but as there's not a lot of traffic, and most people here are likely on other FM-related web lists, I thought it a good topic for discussion.  So here are the options that I've considered so far; let me know if you think of others:
