Thanks for replying Chris.  I couldn't remember the details of your concern.

Just for clarification, can you remind me if there is any spam filter on 
the current CLA mail before it gets to recipients?

I've been impressed by Google Groups spam handling.  I've been owner of 
a few open lists for over a year and had only a handful of spam 
moderation requests (that I can safely ignore and messages are 
discarded).  The vast majority of the real spam gets trashed instead of 
making it into the moderation queue.

Anyway, I'm all in favor of using a mailing list solution that meets our 
workflow needs.  I didn't suggest Google Groups initially because I 
anticipated opposition.

Since nobody has voted down the idea of an archived list, and I think 
the benefits are worthwhile (having CLA archived somewhere accessible by 
more than one person), I'm going forward with it.

Chris, given your ambivalence, I won't add you as a moderator.  Of 
course you can still access the archive or add yourself as a moderator 
as you see fit.
