No.  Besides what Brad said about Python conference and sprinting,
there's really only one person, Barry Warsaw, who has done nearly all
of the work on the existing Mailman 3 code base, I believe.  While
he's been pretty good about talking about requirements off and on, as
a day-to-day matter there's not much need for public comment about
what code changes he's making (if any).  Even the CVS logs won't
necessarily be indicative of what work is taking place in his personal

If you have some "real lists" that you could "sacrifice" as beta test
guinea pigs, or if you want to contribute significant functionality,
that might kick-start communication.  But AFAIK the code base is still
rather incomplete even for basic functionality, not beta-test ready,
and the other active developers are mostly focused on ongoing
maintenance and improvement of Mailman 2.x which is necessary for the
near future.
