This is exactly what I'm trying to do, so...

On the other hand, the suggested list is for all statistics discussions
*within* Fedora. Maybe it would be a better idea to have a datanommer
list at Fedora Hosted, and leave Fedora-specific discussion to this

It's easy for me to say "oh no, no, this won't happen," but it's a lot
harder to keep that promise. ;)  I can try my best to keep all of the
discussions that need to happen here, here. Getting an RFR and a sponsor
(which is something else I need to do) should probably help with that.
