+1 to Jeroen's suggestion that we should minimise email traffic.

+1 to Brandon's suggestion of managing in a wiki (although there are 
other ways which work too)

We should be careful not to "love our list to death" by swamping it with 
well meaning but little value content, thus reducing the 
"signal-to-noise ratio". Most modern Codes of Conduct [1] discuss being 
concise in our communication and considering the readers. If you don't, 
your community will silently drop off.

I for one have not read any of the nominations on the email list, and 
I'm probably one of OSGeo Discuss's most active members. There is too much.
