Subject RE: cross-project communication space?

-1 on a PMC to coordinate the coordination of a cross-project coordination :-)

I just put the following quote in a deck I'll be using lately, seems applicable...

My opponent’s reasoning reminds me of the heathen, who, being asked on what the world stood,
replied, “on a tortoise.” But on what does the tortoise stand? “On another tortoise.”

Joseph Barker (1854)

It's a mailing list, it's not that important in and of itself. If you want a home for the
kick-off (e.g. this conversation) and the eventual retirement (if that ever comes) then ComDev
is the place. It might make sense to formally assign the ownership of the list to ComDev so
that should it ever reach retirement that PMC is empowered to request infra remove it. But
otherwise it’s just a list.
