What is Adepters?

Adepters was the name of the original mailing list, an invaluable resource for Arbortext customers since 1996.

The name was an alloy of the names of the Arbortext product series Adept, and the legendary mailing list for FrameMaker users, framers.

The significance of the Adepters name used to be mentioned on the Arbortext page on Wikipedia until some Marketing folks got hold of the page and it was speedily deleted by the Wikipedia monitors. That history is lost, but we've done our best to recover and preserve it.
