Cool! Then everyone agrees announcing new lists here is good.

I started a wiki page to document this discussion:

http://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/Mailing_List_Creation_Policies

Hmm, maybe I just didn't know how to do that. I am the admin for lists
which I don't need to be part of, so I will try that and report back
if I can't make the change.

I asked a while back, but no big deal, Marc. :)  We'll sort it all out now.

I asked for the pgus-board list to be deactivated, but didn't
specifically CC Marc:

http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-www/2010-04/msg00017.php

My request for admin rights to be removed probably wasn't cc'd to the
list. But like I said, it's not a big deal, obviously, since I hadn't
bothered to ask about it since April. :)

I do think that non-core pgsql lists will require a little more
frequent management, but as long as more than just one person has the
ability to make changes or point people to the right places to
reconfigure things themselves, I think we'll be totally fine.
