Mailing List

FESCo has a private mailing list for sensitive matters. This list will have as subscribers only the current FESCo members and the Fedora Project Leader. This list should only be used in very rare situations with private information. The FESCo chair should make sure any discussion on this list that doesn't need to be private should be resent in a public forum (FESCo trac, devel list, etc).
