Right. I am saying that removing excess defunkt mailing lists
helps volunteers find where actual activity taking place and join.

I am not quite sure that hierarchical organization of people
around site departments is a right way to go, but it will be
nice to move this discussions to a different thread. I'd like
to solve the problem that was raised by OP in this thread
at least partially ASAP, not waiting few more months. It is
not fun to wait for some ecosystem if all needed arguments
for this specific problem can be discussed right here right
now and action taken to make it easier at least partially.
