Point one refers to the private lists, I think.

Maybe add a "point zero" with an introduction to the mailing lists, as
Ross asked? Not a detailed introduction, just to say most lists are
public but one is private. Then the "code of conduct" can be separated
on a "general part" that apply to all lists and a second part with
additional rules (for instance, the privacy one) for the private list.
