I don't see why fedora-packages-commits is better than
fedora-pkgs-commits, but whatever.  As long as it's not
fedora-$(SCM_OF_THE_DAY)-commits.

I think this whole list can just die.  If things really need to be
discussed in private (which most don't), an email alias similar to
rel-eng can be set up.

fedora-project is entirely too ambiguous as to what should be discussed
there.  "Project" is the most overloaded term we have in Fedora today.

I think the current name is just fine, but if you must rename it call it
fedora-advisory.

I think that should be avoided for fedora-list.  We don't want to punish
newbies with our plain-text elitism, nor can we possibly provide
instructions on how to do plain text for every email client out there.
