While I'm sure many appreciate the offer as I do, I can tell you for me
personally: never going to happen.  Why would I spend all that time and
energy participating in ANOTHER list controlled by Oracle, when they have
shown they have no qualms about eliminating it with basically 0 warning, at
their whim?  I'll be sticking to the illumos lists that I'm confident will
be turned over to someone else should the current maintainers decide they
no longer wish to contribute to the project.  On the flip side, I think we
welcome all Oracle employees to participate in that list should corporate
policy allow you to.
