I don't understand the problem with contacting the marketing list. Can 
you perhaps make it clear to me how magazine-related discussions are not 
marketing-related and why they should be separate?

I'm not talking only about major changes, though - I'm talking about any 
general discussion.

The magazine should be a core part of the marketing effort, IMHO. Having 
it require two lists seems counter-intuitive to that.

Unfortunately, I was unable to make the meeting due to being in new hire 
orientation, or I would have disagreed. This is one of the reasons I 
like Apache's approach of taking decisions on the mailing list and 
having a 72-hour window to discuss things... by default, there's always 
someone who can't make a meeting due to time zone issues, work 
commitments, etc.
