If no one expresses a concern about this change in
three days, I think we could consider it decided that
the list admins (dri at indymedia.org, anna at
mail.nadir.org, remi.d at mezimail.com, apb at
swissmail.org, wowi at grepgrrl.org, chiapas at
riseup.net) should make the roster available to
normally decisions should have a longer discussion
timeframe but this seems like a relatively trivial
