+1 from me

This is a summary of what I'm hearing:

baypiggies-announce would contain:
  * Meeting announcements for *just* BayPiggies.
  * Reminders that we need speakers if we get low.

baypiggies would contain:
  * All of the above.
  * Plus general Python chatter.
  * People organizing the talks can use this list or break into
private email as they feel is appropriate.

baypiggies-jobs would contain:
  * Python job postings.  The requirements would be a bit looser.
That is, recruiters would be allowed.  Jobs outside the Bay Area would
be allowed if relocation expenses were included or if the work could
be done from the Bay Area.

Do we have rough consensus?

Best Regards,
