The mailing list is populated by many people who know a lot about PHP. Send mail to email@example.com with whatever you want in the subject and body of the message to join. Do the same to firstname.lastname@example.org to leave. Traffic is fairly heavy, currently about 100-200 messages a day.
There are only a couple of books about PHP at the time of this writing, and they are not getting rave reviews on the mailing list. More titles are supposed to be on the way.
