Well, I personally certainly don't object to a limited amount of
recruiting via the list (having used it myself to that effect in the
past).  Posting beowulf-specific job openings one time, or posting an
announcement one time that you are beowulf-skilled and looking for work
(see attached CV) should likely be tolerated, as the community in either
direction is likely to be small and in many cases connected only via
this list.

However, I agree that a "beowulf bulletin board" would be a useful thing
to have and is more appropriate in the long run.  Dwight was planning to
set one up on; or it might be a good idea to add
an associated pair of lists to the mailman server on when this
is all running.  beowulf-jobs is a reasonable list to have, and because
mailman archives the list in web-accessible form, it would be very
simple for employers or jobseekers to post there or search for recent
