Subject: Re: Mailing List Archival: Tell me what you think

/ Jon Bosak <bosak@boethius.eng.sun.com> was heard to say:
| Everything we're doing in the process committee hinges on the
| assumption that archives are public (not world-writable, but
| world-readable).

Does it follow that private lists will be publicly archived?
I'm hesitant to announce the DocBook list archive because the
docbook-eb and docbook-tc lists are equally accessible.

It's always been my assumption that the EB list, for example,
would not be made public. I'm not sure that all discussions have
been carried out with the sort of political correctness that
would have been used had the list been public. I'm not sure they
weren't either, but...
