ok, fair point. but how should we make those additions? just add everyone?
but who are 'everyone' ?
- everyone on theforum list?
- everyone that shows interest?
- everyone who?

don't we have to define who should have the privilege to approve articles?

if yes, how do we do that?
- the admin group has process for it, but no one else has. so if you reject
the admin group's process, offer another one.

i think that if we add everyone we add too many, but oh yeah, i want to add
people to the article approving process and i want to have quite a lot
there, but not everyone.

caveat: i don't know how many are subscribed to theforum list, so i don't
know if adding all theforum subscribers is too many ... hence my -1 vote in
adding theforum to leo at this point ... let's mold these things first.
