Ah, re-reading what you wrote that is clearer. I don't think "short 
lived" is part of the intent of even the majority of sigs though - 
catalog-sig is active and long lived, so is edu-sig, so is 
distutils-sig, so is email-sig, so is web-sig (and so on).

So anatoly's original hypothesis that most of the sigs are defunct is 
very wrong.

All the best,
