My first reaction was "NOOOO, I want my exclusive MARKETING LIST!!"
(note caps and 2, yes two, exclamation marks. So restrained ;) )
But then my consideration is that you are right. We (people) tend to package
things in terms of job descriptions. This is a hangover from our offline work
Marketing, website, education, documentation, graphic design: all are
communication, so lets put them under a single mail list. The more I think
about it the more i like the synergies that would come out of that.

The only problem I have is that important stuff can get buried in noise. For
instance if a group of us were working on a mission statement, the thread
would not be busy and would disappear off the bottom in really short order.
The ideal solution of course would be a Email Subject/title convention, but
noone ever sticks to those in an open source project, it's hard enough to get
them to stop top posting! :D However a single Comms list would mitigate that
to a degree

OK, they're horrible bloody things in many ways from a usage pov,

I would prefer collaboration on google docs but pirate pads realtime update
is a killer feature at this point and so I'll put up with the other
I will have breakfast and get into it
