Ian's right that -general is the appropriate place for general discussion about our procedures for passing resolutions and admitting new projects:

However, for discussing potential new associated projects before they join,
-private is appropriate, so that if e.g. the members disapprove of a potential
new project, we don't air all of that dirty laundry for the world and the
search engine indexes to see.

I'm going to try very hard not to post further on-list messages in this thread,
to cut down on the very noise you were concerned about.

That's their loss. The spam problems have been long since fixed, so there's no
real reason not to be on it if you care about SPI enough to be a contributing
