I think we've got three people to moderate a mailing list. I think we
should move forward with that.
I'll tackle the wiki page if there are no objections. People interested
in posting their job and/or resume on the wiki page could contact me
directly at sunburned.surveyor at gmail.com.
Let me know if there are any objections to this. If there are no
objections, then I will set up the wiki pages.

I've no interest in maintaining a wiki page -- but I'd be happy to own
the occasional (biweekly) summary emails pointing to the wiki.
