For sure!

I'm not sure what the point of a students list would be.  I'm sure that
students can find each other if there is a need.

I would actually think having the students join this list *would* be
helpful for discussing things about how OSGeo is handling the SoC.  I
would note that even if we don't want the students on this list, it is
still public, so it isn't like this is a private place we can discuss
sensitive topics.

Are there any objections to having all the students join this list?
