Yeah, infrastructure@ has been the right place to go, and is still the place
to go for most infra queries. However I felt this was specific enough that
we could take away potential user/config questions away from the infra list
and have those interested parties take the traffic. (I compared it to
repository@ which is another specific list that most of infra would not be
interested in).

I raised a discussion thread on infrastructure@ suggesting this list and got
+1s all around. I will send mails out to pmcs@ notifying them of this new
list soon.

Absolutely, ci.apache.org was created a couple of months back whilst testing
buildbot and before this amalgamation of CIs list was thought about. It
makes sense so I will do that soon, thanks for the suggestion.
