You don't want that to be totally open, right? One suggestion I've made in the past is to have the list _archives_ be open. So anything older than, say, a month is made public. That way, folks can see how issues were disclosed, how decisions were reached, etc. for old issues that are no longer under embargo. The way I see it, if we don't publish the list archive on our own terms, miscreants will get around to publishing it for us. -- Michael J.
