+1.  So, xen-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, xapi-devel@, &c for project
lists, but publicity@, announce@ without prefixes.

What would this new list be used for?  The sort of thing that's currently
cross-posted to the various developer lists?  Unless that list is
automatically maintained as the union of all the dev list members, it
seems like it will just make the process less transparent (since people
who join xen-devel@ won't know to join governance@ too and so will be
left out).

I don't think there's much use for separate committer/maintainer lists:
anything the committers or maintainers want to discuss in public can
just happen on the developer lists.  There won't be very much of it.
