Probably better to use a tracker.d.o team - option 3 here:


That means interested people can join (and leave!) but I don't think
there's a public archive.

I'm happy to migrate to list.d.o if people think an actual list is
useful.  It should at least have better spam filtering there than the
current list.  Or to alioth-lists.d.n if that really seems the best
