But we need do choose one. I choose pkgs-commits because pkgs is what we
use in CVS as well -- that made most sense to me.

That's up for (the new) FESCo do decide. But I tend to agree, as a list
accidentally leads to private discussions (seen to often in the past
IMHO -- just two or three month ago FESCo voted on a proposal from
notting that accidentally got discussed on the private list only
beforehand).

Then there are no archives -- that has benefits (new FESCO members can't
look up what the earlier ones said about them in the past) and
disadvantages ("Who said what when").
