Re: A paucity of moderators for Subversion lists.

I don't think people can add themselves as moderators, only project admin
can add them through the web UI. Since Karl's about to be offline for
awhile, I'd be happy to handle adding moderators, so if you want to
volunteer let me know. I'll let the other moderators know at the same

Also, it's not exactly elegant when lists have more than one moderator,
because one moderator doesn't know if the other has acted upon a given
message. It's not harmful - if someone approves a message the other has
deleted or not read the notice for (you don't have to explicitly
disapprove messages, they time out after ten days), it goes through, and
if both approve, the first one succeeded and the other just is ignored.
It's nice to have some overlap if people don't mind duplicating the effort
I guess, or you could do explicit hand-offs I guess.
