Will people know what “a similar level of transparency” to the Public Mail List” will mean?  Is it up to the Working Group to make that determination?  Or could someone come in and say “Hey, I see you’re using GitHub - that’s not transparent enough because it requires me to have an account and a password, and I don’t want to do that.  So it’s not as transparent as the Public List."

But that is the situation now with respect to the BRs, for example, and
yet we seem to manage while having a transparency requirement.

I am not saying there should be no private communication, but that the
default modes of communication for a WG are required to be transparent
ones, as is true now.
