I think a whole new list for a governance board is silly anyways. Too  many 
mailing list are just an annoyance. The governance board of  NetBeans uses the 
nbdiscuss list which is the NetBeans Discuss list and  that works out well. No 
separate list needed. Then everything discussing  the project is done in one 
simple place.

Nothing the governance board is going to discuss is not going to be about 
discussing the project. Thus, I don't understand the need for such a list. 
Again, just annoying.
