Leadership in the corporate world is way different than how things
work in the floss world, where its a mix of getting hands dirty and
DIY with some (or a lot of) help from the community. I dont know a
community where folks (irrespective of gender) issue orders on
"footask will be done by fooperson" and fooperson obeying the order.
Doubt if that is gonna work, but that is my zero paise worth.

+1 for the list too. maybe IRC too if it were logged (it isnt right
now). IIRC, bots are not allowed on the irc server run by the chix, so
not possible i guess.

I vote for that too. We have a positive response that the main LC is
willing to provide us with hosting and any technical help that we may
need. We can use http://in.linuxchix.org , and the current domain can
be redirected if the owner so desires. We already have the list and
irc channel with them so makes more sense to keep things in one place.
