Then we have a *big* problem.

An app or scripts to make this easy are not only a nice thing to have, 
but a hard necessity as I see now.

"Do it yourself" scales, and I would think that any ASF member should be 
able to create a list, given evident consensus. We did the same for the 
Incubator files, remember?

The fact that Apache members (that are thus trusted) cannot do it on 
their own (lack of knowledge and too much effort) and must bug the poor 
infra guys is a big problem.
