This is confusing, and not what was intended.  In other words,
openssl-project is *not* a new openssl-dev!  If it was, I don't see
why we would even bother making a new list...

Governance and policies (roughly speaking, 'cause there may be some
derailing that's shouldn't be there) is not, as far as I understand,
"development of OpenSSL".  It may be close, thought, such as planning
the schedule of the next release.
