+1 for no attachments.  While I'm travelling I use a capped connection
to download my mail - every little helps :)

I wasn't part of the discussion on IRC, but as for the admin thing, it
would be nice to know how someone who is willing to make a long term
commitment to helping with the list could do so.  I agree that  adding /
removing people every few months based on the current leadership would
be a bad idea (although I'm not sure if that's even what was meant), but
having a wiki page for "So you want to help with the mailing list" would
be helpful.

Even if that page just said something like "We aim to have three
moderators at any one time.  Currently, we have enough.  If one has to
leave, we will make a recruiting announcement on the list".  At least
then everyone would know how it works.
