Hi everyone,
 Thanks for your feedback on the organizers/volunteers list proposal. Based
on the feedback, we'll keep the organizing traffic on the main list. We
suggest that you put the phrase [volunteers] in your subject line if you
initiate a thread about organizing the monthly meetings and other
volunteer-related tasks. This will let people filter the messages if
desired, and potentially create a separate "topic" in the mailing list
system in the future.

I'm looking forward to seeing many of you at tonight's talk!

> Hi everyone,
> As you know, Glen Jarvis has taken the initiative to reconstitute the
> BayPiggies monthly meetings and get a new set of active organizers. There
> has been an informal discussion happening on a private email thread to line
> up the next set of meetings and match responsibilities to volunteers.
> Currently, there are 9 participants in the thread.
> This approach is getting a little unwieldy, so we were thinking of
> creating a separate mailing list (e.g. baypiggies-organizers at python.org).
> This list would be available to anyone and the archives would be public.
> The reasons for a separate list are:
>    1. The people on the list are self-identifying as active volunteers
>    and can be pressed into service as needed :-)
>    2. Keep some of the detailed organizing traffic (revolving mostly
>    around the monthly meetings in Mountain View) off the main list
> The potential downside would be that it could splinter the group somewhat
> or cause people to miss out on calls for volunteers. The alternative is to
> have this organizational chatter directly in the main list.
> If you feel strongly for a sub-list, please reply and vote +1. if you feel
> strongly against a sub-list, please reply and vote -1. Thank you for your
> input!
> Regards,
