This year we have foss4g2008loc at lists.osgeo.org and foss4g2008-private
and they're working well. The private has just the voting members of the
LOC and the LOC list has about 50 extra hangers-on at the moment.

Agreed.  I was mentally thinking of the Aust-NZ list as the "open"
foss4g-2009 list, but obviously that's a bloody silly idea.  For the bid
we had a separate closed list for sensitive details, and used the two
lists in that manner you indicated.
