I fear that the discussions from the end of 2009 about making a new 
famsco list with open archives are lost in the archives of the old, 
private FAMSCO list that wasn't part of lists.fedoraproject.org.

My honest feeling is that there is very little that FAMSCO needs to 
discuss that can't be discussed in a fully transparent manner.

The only sorts of things that would want privacy are issues regarding 
potential mis-use of funds, or Fedora code of conduct issues.  In which 
case, starting a private thread with the few email addresses of FAMSCO 
members is not a heavy burden, and is actually a useful gut-check.

Making it take a bit of effort to start a private thread is a good thing 
in a project like Fedora Ambassadors that requires transparency in order 
to be effective.

My recommendation -- don't go back over already-discussed ground.  :)

--Max, surprisingly talkative on Fedora-related issues today.
