Hi Noel, I overlooked your email; it wasn't a conspiracy.
The Council decided on a separate list after receiving feedback from
some members of Linux Australia that while they wanted to have input
into Grant Requests, they did *not* want to subscribe to the linux-aus
list, given its history of, shall we say, some conversations that have
become very heated. Most of our actions for continual improvement are
driven, not by some dark "ulterior motive", but a desire for genuinely
incorporating community feedback into our processes and practices.
There's no secrecy at all, I've sent several communications to this list
to say "hey, Grants List is over here".
Here it is again. In plain text. Unencrypted.
Calling it "secrecy" is quite the strech, Noel ...
