I am not a fan of  cross-posts but I guess I will respond to this one.  
I  don't think it is how you meant it, but I really think that this poem 
is really an excellent description of women@ these many years, a silent 
house where no one ever lived inside.  There was just no "there",  
there, and the current exercise was mostly to make sure the utilities 
were shut off and such.  I don't think anyone on the existing list felt 
evicted or we would have heard from them by now.  Your new interest in 
it is great, but it certainly would be healthier to start completely 
from scratch with a solid foundation.

As Bertrand suggests, it is entirely within the realm of possibility 
that the lessons learned from the experiment can  feed back into 
creating a list that really works, something with a defined purpose, a 
way of making it happen and a membership committed to doing so in the 
context of making great Apache  software.
