With Ram's permission, I am forwarded a message he sent to the RyC list
regarding the establishment of an IDN list.

Chuck, all:
I see no reason to use the old list for a new set of discussions that
may be orthogonal or tangential to the original discussions.
The original IDN WG mailing list should have been closed at the closure
of the prior working group.  To reuse it, and to automatically opt-in
its members to a new list with new rules and new charters does not make
much sense to me.
The second issue is that I expect the new discussions will be primarily
on gTLD IDN matters; the IDN WG list was populated by a large array of
folks, only a few from the gTLDs.
The third issue is that when the list is now populated with the new
topics, archives will appear as if the group took a 6-month hiatus, and
resumed its deliberations on the same topics, which would be misleading
(to say the least).
Is it really so hard to setup a new list, solicit participants (even get
the vetted emails of members from the current list), and start out?
This should not be such a difficult step.
. . .
