Yes, such a list is coming. For lack of a better word, it is a list meant 
for the stakeholders of the entire process. The list archives will be 
public, but membership will be limited to folks with commit access as a 
way of keeping things on track and focused on various tasks that need to 
be performed.

I will seed the initial list with selected members of the Red Hat 
development team and the fedora.us members. Until we get more 
sophisticated about things, the membership criteria will be direct 
ownership of a "good chunk" of Fedora packages. The exact definition of a 
"good chunk" will rest with me for a while, again until this will get 
figured out better.

A proposal which I favor would be to have the discussions of this smaller 
list cross-posted here, so other interested parties can spawn follow-up 
threads that might or might not have a direct relevance to the work done 
by the package maintainers.
