In order to serve and assist future "apprentices" or maintainers, the
communication between the two should be public (unless private on
purpose), or somehow publicly available. Given the undesirability of
having ten gazillion mailing lists, and likely the limited storage space
on tmtowtdi (or whatver variation it's spelling is), is there any way that
this could become a realistic goal? Even if there's a "waiting list",
perhaps one person's apprenticeship could help others who are waiting.
What I wrote last night was rather utopian. In reality, working from
history as an example, I'm a bit worried that there will end up more Toms
than Dans and Nats.
