We could have private archiving, which forces people to register, and
thus messages aren't indexed by Google.
I don't see any reason to have private archiving, but while I'm going
through the preferences, thought I'd bring it up.
If I may share my experience within the French chapter : a closed
low-traffic list reserved to members of the chapter can really be
all the members are automatically subscribed to the list. Such a list is
useful when the board needs to reach all members for important internal
messages. And an open public high-traffic mailing list is useful too for
general discussions. So I would say: keep this general list public,
may in the future create a closed mailing list for members.
I absolutely agree. Once the chapter is formed discussions will be
needed that should be confidential.
