And it surely would be a low-activity list; however, it is sometimes
necessary to discuss things that really don't have a place on the devel
list at large: one such thing we need to discuss is a more precise
understanding of what does and does not make it into the list of
packages that we share responsibility for. I can simply include the
membership in my To: headers, but this is cumbersome and isn't very good
for handling new members that arrive after the thread begins.

We could use a wiki discussion page, I suppose, but this seems like an
inferior solution.
