Guys do we need a developer list?  I'm trying to figure out why
more of the conversations I find myself involved in are not on
the public list.  Is it a signal to noise ratio problem?

I'm just annoyed that the conversations that pass through
my inbox not being on the public list seem to be more about
linuxbios than the conversations on the LinuxBIOS list.
