Oh, sorry, I had thought it was an intellectual exercise to spur some 
new thoughts and get some random golf-related links into our archives 
for some reason.

-1, because we've shown numerous times that broadly scoped mailing lists 
that aren't controlled by a healthy PMC won't work.

-1 also because we have no need to provide anonymization services like 
the proposal notes the woman@ address would be used for.  While people 
are free to use whatever external email address for themselves they 
wish, the ASF doesn't need to provide an anonymous front-end for them.

- Shane

P.S. Please remember that the women@ email list will be shut down just 
as soon as the infrastructure team finishes the JIRA ticket.
