I guess I was curious as to if that was done programmatically or via policy.
No big deal.

I'll keep it on the list - it needs some free advertising.

Done, and soon to be mailed.  Here's some of the changes made:
(Included here to close off some open-ended discussions.)

Added bootstrap (since it has an archive) and removed -language-unlink 
(since it didn't).  I said that -source-control wasn't on the list, but I 
was mistaken.  I left perl6-porters off the list, because it's really the 
*other* Perl 6, and not Perl 6: TNG, even though some extraneous traffic did 
find its way onto it.

Added a closed field for the date officially closed (vice when people 
stopped mailing to it, which was invariably later).  Patched the generator 
to trigger off that vice a [closed] section.

Normalized field names and values.  In currently used lists, removed 
references to RFC generation.  Also removed deadlines from the current 
lists, (but not the deadline field, so they can be reinstituted.)

Broke the lists up into two separate sections, Current and Closed.  Each 
section has an intro blurb.  The perl6-all section, which appears last on 
the page, should probably be grouped with the two -announce* groups, perhaps 
behind a read-only or special blurb?  

Marked all lists as 'Closed' except for -qa, -build, -internals, -language, 
-meta, and -stdlib.

Minor stuff, like data file comments and entry sorting.

Did I miss anything?  Or, more importantly, break anything?
