it's actually wider than that; implicit in the outcome of the recent
discussion, and as a matter of apparently inadequately stated policy,
any asf member may subscribe to the board@ list.  in fact, all are
encouraged to do so, that they can keep themselves informed.

something that also came out of the recent discussion is that private
(not even members) lists are permitted, though discouraged, as long
as no asf-affecting decisions are made on them.  all such decisions
need to be made in the light where members can see them.
