Either way is OK with me, but see below.
One other point; we currently have only a single person organizing the
reviews. Inevitable, that person gets busy, and things slip. This happened
when I scheduled review, and it is happening now with Thomas.
So I think we should consider spreading that responsibility among, say,
three or four people.
One advantage of a separate list would be that those three or four people
could be the list moderators. Say the list is named "boost-review". Then
mail to "boost-review-owner" could be used for coordination between review
Would that make sense?
