I'm okay with discussion happening here.  Here's a pro and a con to a new
list though:

If you're going to try to get other, non-Fedora, projects using this, having
a new mailing list might be a better fit.  People from other projects might
not be especially keen to get the fedora-infra list discussion just to work
on datanommer.

The worry I have when a project that Fedora is relying on heavily gets its
own mailing list is that the communication between the project and Fedora
Admins tends to degrade.  Schedules for deployment, resources to host the
service, people to maintain applications, etc all seem to get talked about
on the other list and the infrastructure group gets pulled in at the last
minute when we have to resolve conflicts, try to fix code unfamiliar to us,
or simply say no.
