We have two public mailing lists for the WebID Community Group.
The XG mailing list has all those who subscribed to the XG mailing
list + all the members of the WebID Community Group, while the
public-webid mailing list only has the WebID members and those who
joined and subscribed to that. The number of members are

- 90 e-mail accounts for  public-xg-webid@w3.org 
- 26                 for  public-webid@w3.org

I think it would be good to close one of them as otherwise discussions
will end up be going in parallel in both groups, and so water down the 

So the ideal may be to move everyone on public-xg-webid to public-webid.
But if that cannot be done without asking everybody to resubscribe, 
then I think it may be better to close the public-webid mailing list, 
and stick with the weird XG legacy.
