Yes: std-unix@uunet.uu.net, requests to std-unix-request@uunet.uu.net;
also distributed as newsgroup comp.std.unix on USENET. I'm the moderator.

There are various paper mailing lists and levels of participation in the
various committees. I will send you in a separate message a copy of my
semi-monthly posting on that subject. Most people on the TCP-IP list
are probably not interested.

Yes. There will be a report on that in comp.std.unix in the next few days.
