So, essentially the "public" lists are equivalent to "-comment" list in 
Working Groups, and the "contrib" The "internal" lists are equivalent to 
the "private" lists for W3C Groups.

Two questions for chairs of CGs:

1) Does any group plan to use/want an "contrib" list?

2) However, does any group plan to use/want an "internal" list?
