That's an interesting point.
What if everything we did now on arch-dev would become publicly readable..
that would mean a subgroup of the community would be aware of things such as our finances, who we are considering bringing in as a developer, what's going on with Arch legally, infrastructure related things, security issues or april fools jokes we are working on.
I've always wanted to move *some* discussions from arch-dev to arch-dev-public but this is a bit more extreme.  Not necessarily bad though, something to ponder.
