Soon after this setup was put in place (probably ca. six months, max year)
it was nixed again. This was mainly because many thought that most, if not
all things, should better be served on theforum rather than split around the
other lists.
The only three lists that I thought survived that nix were sysadmin, content
and finance - but I might be wrong.

I'm writing from memory, but theforum archives are available and searchable
if anyone wants to do the accurate version :)

See more comments in my other email (re. Current Maintainers).
