Subject: ebXML list of participants

OASIS IT staff has been maintaining the ebXML list of participants
(http://www.ebxml.org/participants/participants.htm) by hand, and adding new
names every few weeks. This isn't really a list of people who participate,
but rather a list of people who subscribe to any the ebXML lists, whether
they particpate or not. (Given the numbers, it's actually a list of lurkers:
there's ~2000 people on the list, but probably only a couple hundred of
those really participate.)

My question is whether we should make the effort to continue to keep this
list current. Over 900 people have subscribed to the mail lists in the past
five weeks! Do we want those 900 people added (by hand) to the participants
list? I think anyone who is truly participating has been doing so for quite
some time, so the people subscribing now are just lurking.

So, we can either 1) continue to manually add new people to the list as they
subscribe, 2) stop adding people and just leave it where it's at today, or
3) actually come up with a list of participants (defined as what?) and
publish that list on the web page.

Feedback, please.
