Steering is now defunct. Soon enough our lists should be updated to 
reflect a new structure (any day now, right? right?) of theforum, 
thecontent, and thecode.

Basically forum will encompass steering and finance. and in fact, there 
shouldn't be discussion going on in finance anymore either, since it's 
possible for them to switch straight over to here.

The original idea, iirc, was that anybody could join theforum to pitch 
in, but only somebody who'd been around a little while and we knew was 
trustworthy would be allowed to join groups more deeply involved in 
running evolt, such as content (editing articles & replying to e-mail) 
or of course finance. You should be able to e-mail the list and ask to 
be let join.

As I said though, the lists should very shortly be shuffled, so you 
might want to wait for that.
