Archives of the code signing and EV improvements mailing lists are currently private, and these lists aren't set up to allow non-members to subscribe.  Unless someone disagrees with Gerv's (and my) interpretation of the bylaws, I'll change them to match the public list.

That's surprising to me; I believe that the intent was that they would be, and that (as Wayne notes) the bylaws seem to suggest that view also.
"Managed in the same fashion as the Public Mail List" implies that they are, you know, public :-) Otherwise it would have said "Management Mail List".

Having them as public also resolves the tension that has been pointed out on this thread - the "inform the main list" function is then only one of notification, not disclosure, and people can always go looking for more information if they want it.

So if they aren't public, perhaps we should fix that.
