Agreed. We're up to 58 subscribers now, and they're going to keep coming
for another while. Trying to quell the discussion now is not the way to do
it. We should keep seul-edu as the primary discussion list until we have a
more precise plan for what we want to develop and who's going to develop it.

But this doesn't mean that people interested in discussing a particular
sub-project indepth shouldn't start working on it. They can either discuss
privately (please cc me and dloss@seul.org so we can keep in sync with
people) with those interested in that sub-project (and post periodic
(daily or every other day) updates to the list itself) or I can set up a
list for that discussion, in preparation for when it's "opened" to general

I will leave final call up to Doug.
