Some background information for why the decision was initially made is
Your rational is a bit off or can be understood incorrectly in how the
current rules go. Discussion should happen on the on topic mailing list
(most of the time gentoo-dev or gentoo-project). gentoo-project is only
used to submit threads to the agenda regardless of where the discussion
happens. gentoo-dev-announce can be used to draw attention to important
things. How do you propose people decide if something is gentoo-council
material or do we go back to the situation where threads get fragmented
to multiple mailing lists? If actual discussion happens elsewhere than
gentoo-council then I don't think we need a separate mailing list just
for handling agendas etc. Finally I think gentoo-project / gentoo-dev
reach a wider audencience but we should get verified numbers from infra.
