I think most people who put there name down should be on this list or either watching the page - at least I'd personally expect that from anybody willing to join as a member :)

Still, it would be good to notify people on-wiki.

talk page, it would be good. I don't think we can expect everyone to
be either on this list or watching the meta page.
