I'd rather shut down the teams, and replace them with SIGs - I don't
see a need to restrict these to the membership. I'd also like to
stick someone in charge of these, so there's a responsible body to
keep things going - that person, I think, ought to be a member.
As for Social, I honestly don't know where that belongs. I'm not sure
it deserves its own list, but I wouldn't merge it with jdev either -

Security is an oddball - we have lots of folk on there that wouldn't
care as much about general XMPP work.
But MUC and PubSub haven't really proven themselves to be worthwhile
as a seperate list (almost the opposite). I could also say the same
for Jingle, even if it's much more active.
