As a slacker of a developer and a former council member I fully support
the council having it's own mailing list and aliases. Please don't allow
them to force me to have to subscribe to yet another mailing list that I
have to filter the * out of just to get to the core of what I need to
know. Just have ppl try to CC: -project or the likes when fitting.
