      Description

      The generated mailing list report has a header which provides basic info on the page.

      However, in some cases this information is not enough.
      For example, some lists may not allow posting; it would be useful to be able to explain why.
      In the case of Apache Commons, the lists are shared, so users need to add a prefix to the subject line.
      There are no doubt other use cases.

      It would be useful to be able to override the introduction.

        Thanks, that's useful.

        However, HTML markup ought to be allowed, e.g. to allow a link to a page describing the e-mail etiquette etc.
        In particular there really needs to be a link to the Forum Archive Policy http://www.apache.org/foundation/public-archives.html

        The string can be specified using the <![CDATA[ tag, however something in the code then escapes the < & > so they have no effect, which makes the option rather less useful than it could be.
