It has been pointed out to me (offlist) that it might be inappropriate
to do this. I would therefore like to clarify something.

My suggestion to actively recruit from other communities was made with
the assumption that the infrastructure these groups are using is part
of the old OO.o infrastructure (i.e. their lists are and therefore will be going away soon. If this
assumption is incorrect then it would probably be somewhat
disrespectful of that community (and others) to actively recruit in
this way.
