Being that most of the Devels can't READ the lists in question, the main
list moderator will have to do almost all the list functions.

Which is why we need to make sure that the moderator is a "highly
trusted" person that understands the CentOS team's goals and

The CentOS Development team will certainly be available via IRC and the
main lists to answer policy questions (when will CentOS-5 be released,
can we add the 2.6.18 kernel to CentOSPlus, etc.).

The list moderator will need to ask about items that they are unsure
of ... but they will have the ability to bring in content from non-
members and to unsubscribe users, etc.

We have never really deleted items that make it on the list (though we
could in some cases, ie prono posted, lots of spam, etc.) ... so it is
basically just policing the list, asking people to be nice, provide
authoritative / official CentOS answers on the list, etc.
