Besides the contact persons, just the people doing the work designing
and maintaining the Schoolforge website and databases.

Yes, although till a general Schoolforge mailing list gets set up it
should still be used for general Schoolforge discussions.

This has just ~5-6 members and is the people who initially set up the
Schoolforge website/databases.  It's utility is greatly reduced with the
creation of schoolforge-core, I think, except for technical discussion
of implementing changes to the website/databases.  Oh,
info@schoolforge.net is an alias for this.  We should probably think
about that.

Not yet.  I think that should be next on our list to create.

This sounds like a good idea to me.  I think it should be done on the
schoolforge-core mailing list, though, as it sounds like a Schoolforge
management issue.

Same comment as above.
