Given the details you sent, I'm +1 with like, like JD is.

I agree with Chander...

One solution I think about is that you relay some message(s) from your
friend(s) (or every that will do or may ask us?) to your list.

This way, your friend (or whoever) will not have directly the names nor
e-mails. But if he(she/they) do write things well like "if you want more
info, please mail me at..." the interested people may contact him directly?

Because one problem I see there is that your contacts trust you, but you
may ask them before giving their names or e-mails to a third party. And
this could take days for a 100+ e-mails list.

Another problem in my solution is that you may get annoyed to relay
messages every so on when someone asks you? Or it is this something you
will do twice a year?

IMHO, this problem is not so trivial and needs thinking. The keypoint is
privacy and how we may share contacts inside the project.


PS: any good solution found here is of high interest for any PG local
group, IMHO.
