I didn't use jobs@a.o yet, but I saw a lot of noise on the other mailing lists where people
were looking for apache committers _and_users_ as employees! They all get directed to jobs@a.o.
So if we close this list for non-committers, this may increase the noise on the other lists
even further. 
 
just my .02
