yes, both ctt-digest and info-tex have died: a sad tale, but there we
are. the uni-heidelberg server runs an info-tex (with different
semantics, iirc, from the old shsu one); perhaps they can be persuaded
to run the digest too. alternatively, the tug box might manage it.
i'll ask around.

actually, you'ld save in bits transferred if you set up a server and
took a newsfeed of comp.text.tex on its own. (save, that is, unless
you're actually the *only* person who wants to read c.t.t.)
