I propose that we eliminate any such "internal management" forums.
Having these goes against the transparency that we should be
expressing in all of our work as an Apache project.

If something truly does require confidential treatment then it could
be brought to the ooo-private list, where committers already have
access. And equally important, ooo-private is readable by our podling
mentors and by Apache Members, to ensure we do not abuse the use of
such private lists.

If something requires special treatment because it relates to site
security, then that belongs with Apache Infra.

If we're merely discussing "internal management of the site" on these
closed forums, this may be boring to most site visitors, but that is
not a sufficient reason to conduct this work in private.
