Put the password in a text file in the PMC's private svn area. And
change the mime type to a binary type so you don't get diffs to the
private@ mailing list.

If you want to go the extra mile you can encrypt that file to the PMC
members' private keys (I've never bothered with this step).

Infra uses LastPass but the associated costs ($48 per user per year)
strike me as excessive for the sort of stuff we are generally talking about.
