Hi Matt,

I definitely concur with you. I had just wanted to point out that other mechanisms exists that do the automatic threaded syncing for us.

Reflecting back on our first round with DCP-1,  I noticed that since we used wiki.esipfed.org's mediawiki's Page Discussion feature, it seemed to narrow the discussion to people who had actively went to the page (as opposed to also getting the posts into the mailing list).

It's interesting to note that Apache's discussion motto is that all communications is done via mailing lists. If it's not the mailing list, then it's not really on open record. Chris Mattman is familiar with this.

   I'm not sold on having another mailing list / discussion forum outside
of the existing list.  If the syncing is automatic, then I have less
concern.  Relying on the "cc:" field  and having two lists could be
