This sounds like a lovely  idea!

It might be easiest, considering the state we're in with the NL mailing
lists right now, to document these on a wiki page, and just link to THAT
from the  new NL info page you suggest.

I've seen messages/setups go by for the new mailing lists, but honestly, I
have not been paying close attention.

If someone could create this new wiki page, I would happy to create the
front-end for it (and figure out how to modify the project menu).

Thoughts?
