         It might be a good thing to take the _very_ short term "spinoff" 
lists onto  message board. I think it would do a great deal towards 
encouraging folks to not spend a lot of time on the concept being worked 
on, but get the work done, and get it done right, because everyone is watching.
         It could also cut down on e-mails; you could generate an e-mail 
with links to the various discussions done that day on the boards, and send 
that to perl-all. Of course, a full-text version could-should be accessible 
upon request.
         This would all be under control of that concept's manager, as to 
if it was to go to the board or to email. But it's just a thought -- may 
not work at all. :)
