No problem with that.

I only know that from usenet: You have a moderated jobs group for
job-openings and/or job-requests (do we want that? I don't think so) -
and an unmoderated discussion list for those offerings. But I don't
think we want that either, as that often can lead to nice flame wars
about job offerings.

But if there is to be a list for offers, it should be moderated -
if only to check offers for sanity. This has two advantages: Weed out
jobs which don't meet "standards" (Is it a CentOS related offer? Is it
some "work from home" snowball scheme?) and people who want to offer
jobs do not have to subscribe to the mailing list.

We have to set those standards before opening such a list - that
probably should be done on -devel, as it clearly has nothing to do with
documentation >:)
