thanks... added it to the listmanagement page on the wiki:

big +1... this would be a temporary solution until thecharter has it
all worked out... i would like to spread some of thelist management
across more than just one person, so i'd like to move on that sooner
rather than later...

suggestion on a temporary decision-making process?

the list on the wiki
(http://freezope2.nipltd.net/acorn/evolt/ListManagement) offers good
coverage, and most have done it before, so there's no training
needed...  i do *not* want too many people on, not right now, not
before we know where we're going...

ok, then documentation right now is inline...  good enough...
