It might indeed be best to make the ml all open. I started with the
settings as described above because I'm unsure if a totally open ml
would be a problem for some partners. Especially large corporations
might have very strict policies regarding posting to (public)
mailinglists. And I think all current partners are very valuable to the
project. BTW, are'nt the mailings of the C++ commitee not publicly
accessible for the same reason?

But if an all-open ml does not seem to be a problem to anyone we will
change the policy. OK ?
