Why does evolution-list even provide the possibility to subscribe to a
digest? Isn't a mailing list digest a concept that is broken by design
and has no reason to exist in this century?

Assuming there was ever a reason for digests to exist;  I've always
thought they were a horrible mis-feature that ruins usability.  And I
was on a 28.8k UUCP feed.

I suggest we ask the gnome mailing list admins to convert all digest
subscribers into normal subscribers, and remove the digest

+1, but good-luck, it will never happen.

At least for the Evolution lists.
The mailing list digest concept is a historical artefact from ARPANET
days that deserves to die.
