I'd say this repartition looks nice, although steering... I'm not sure.

Mostly discussions are done on theforum, but steering is the official
'marketplace' between the lists.

I don't know, actually. The purpose of steering imho is to centralise some
decisions and stick to it, and come back officially to the other groups,
kind of like a director board.

I'm not sure I'm clear, though.

Why would you want to keep thesite separated from theadmin?
(considering its low traffic)
