Lists: pgus-general

There is some apparent confusion going around about the mailing lists. I 
think this is my fault and thought I would try and clear it up. There 
are several lists that are all about PgUS. They are:

pgus-general : This list. General discussion, let's rock, let's love 
community, go to burning man, storm the towers and hunt dolphins. All 
are welcome.

members(at)lists(dot)postgresql(dot)us : This is a member announce list. It is 
moderated. It is also the list I think caused the confusion. This list 
is used only to send out occasional communications to the professional 
and student members. It is not a "community" list.

In short the members@ list is for general corporate communications that 
are not of a discussion type nature. Discussion should happen on 
pgus-general, in all its public and archived glory.

We could use pgsql-announce for that but I didn't want to spam the 
global community for a notice about PgUS voting. Vote results sure but a 
standard reminder? Seems like spam to the -announce list.

board : The board list. I think this is obvious.


I have also cleaned up the mailing list page on the PgUS website to help 
this along:
