I indeed hope for a solution soon. Too much time has been wasted 
already, rather than working productively, so if we really would move 
towards a solution, I'd applaud that.

Well, if I recall, my initial proposal has been to simply keep things as 
is, with the existing list, the contacts on it, and the way things 
worked. I was told that this does not fit to the Apache way and does not 
work, that separate lists are required and so on and so on. I was 
proposing the easiest way in the beginning, it was not desired for some 
formal/philosophical/whatever reason.

I tried again this time with proposing a neutral, trustworthy 
third-party to host things, hoping this will be accepted by all parties. 
Let's see how this turns out.
