valid points. I don't have an easy 'out'. OSV can get away with it because 
we have a closed list, which isn't openly published on the web anywhere, 
but to my knowledge, linux-aus is archived and available to all.

I realise that it runs contra to the ideals of openness and
accountability, but trying to get the consensus necessary when
constructing press releases and related marketing projects in an open 
forum (with hundreds of participants) can become quite arduous quite 
quickly. This is particularly a problem when timely responses need to be 
prepared for the media.

ideas on how this can be achieved are welcome.
