Could be done with mailing lists, too (several lists), but I don't see

If the files are useful, Daniel or Björn will put them on the rockbox
site if you have no access to webspace.

We have the FAQ for that, but nobody reads it.

That's true, but Björn is getting faster each time he has to unsubscribe
