Strange, that it wasn’t found. But *linuxboot* consists of two keywords

Thank you I got that, and subscribed.

I do not know, if Google Groups changed, but in the past, I always had
a lot of problems to subscribe and manage such a subscription without a
Google account. I just tried it again, and I do not even find a
subscribe button.

So, as it’s still early, I’d really welcome it, if you decided to move
to Mailman. Would that be possible?
