Clearly.  But we'll start on general@ incubator, and if we need to go  
elswhere, we do.

Sure - every mail list at the ASF has been understood to be under the  
Apache License for contributions, and if you choose to submit  
something to a mail list that isn't intended for people to use, you  
mark it as "NOT A CONTRIBUTION".

Without this, no one could take anything from mail lists and use in  
projects because they wouldn't have been contributed under a license  
we accept.

I just simply made the policy explicit.  I believe every list here  
should do it, and once we get some issues out of the way, I'll  
propose to the greater ASF.
