I think with respect to that, much of it is probably idle conspiracy theorism, 
don't pay too much attention to it. It's usual the less useful people who find 
the time to complain about that. (Makes me wonder about their agendas, but in 
fact -- not really.)

Mailinglist which aren't meant for public consumption are not very useful in 
the list info, that only attracts spammers, adds a lot of overhead for the 
moderators, and doesn't add anything other than some false sense of 
transparency (realistically, it achieves the opposite).

I understood your email as attempt to sort out the mailinglist "mess" (is 
it?), but I'll happily shut up.

Cheers,
