Secret Cabal Mailing List

I was reading through some stuff and came across this gem from the revered Scott Merrill aka Skippy about creating a private mailing list that only commiters can see:

“We (the committers) can discussion patches and contributions by others in a way that won’t get polluted by those people, and so their feelings wont get hurt as we discuss their contributions”

A couple of initial thoughts:

  • This is a FANTASTIC idea. The revered leaders need a place to discuss the hoi polloi without worrying their pretty little heads.
  • Will be perfect for gossip and collusion as well.
  • The existence of the list should be a secret as well. (Does it already exist?)
  • If people bitch about there being a list, we can just say it doesn’t exist but email and cc: each other all the time to basically have a list.
  • Finally, I WANT IN. Please please please please please please please please please.

I think my contributions to the blogosphere and Habari documentation warrant my inclusion into the secret cabal, and I will gladly submit myself to any hazing you bad boys have in mind.

    Definitely. The punters must not get access to the development. Leave it to the professionals otherwise there will be chaos.

    Beside which it is no fun having a cabal which is secret. The fun is to let folks know about it but not to let them join.
