I don't think we have yet hit the traffic level that justifies
segmenting. Since September 1st there have only been 8 openstack
threads on the cloud list. I also think there is a tremendous benefit
in the wider visibility that the cloud sig list brings. If folks won't
'spam' the cloud list, I find it unlikely they'd spam the openstack
list. Similar thoughts re the irc channel.

Provided they are a packager already, I don't see much of a downside
for liberally granting access. It's true that when everyone is
responsible that no one is, but better to be too permissive than too
