Welcome!

If you're interested in infrastructure, then Joe Schaefer recommended
joining the infrastructure@apache.org mailing list[1].

That was my thought, too. Also note that we're talking about an
initial committer list of around 40-50 people (it is approaching 40
now). That many people can easily work on a single list. And yeah...
over time, more lists can be constructed as necessary. We're just
talking about the initial set.

And similar to you, I feel pretty strong about keeping it minimal.
Separating across too many lists might lose the necessary "critical
mass".
