Great work, Bryan.  Thanks!  I think it's time to shuffle some mailing
lists off this mortal coil.

I'm all for removing the inactive mailing lists, those that you say
"could be recycled" or "freeze".  If they're needed for implementation
work later, we can recreate them at that time.  If they have no
specific task to accomplish, they have no reason to exist.

I'd like to see activity on the topics behind:
 * perl6-stdlib
 * perl6-build
Dan, Graham--should these lists persist in their current form?

It looks like the perl6-internals-api-{embed,parser,syntax-tree} lists
represent too much fragmentation, and that the perl6-internals list is
where that discussion will take place.  Dan?

We'd need Chip's okay to close the Topaz list.  I don't know what he
would like to do with it.  I don't anticipate a porters list, probably
more like -patches, -submitters, and -core (along the lines of
FreeBSD).  We can decide how that will work when we actually have code
to maintain, though.

I'd simply start a new List Graveyard page.

Oh dear, dare I ask "Warnock's Dilemma" is?

When their list goes away, so do their reins :-)

Thanks, Bryan.
