Um, yeah... you mean October is the 10th month??? It's been fixed -
now at http://teitac.org/wiki/Announcement_10.13.2006 - and is now

I think the most outstanding item was regarding the two-day notice for
consensus items and determining cochairs. At a minimum, conveners
should be apprised of this.

I'm not sure either. I do not like the idea of posting to all
subcommittee lists - some would get the same message 8 times! But how
much information will there be that should be pushed to both committee
members AND the public? Not much, I would guess. I think posting it
prevalently on the sites (like I have done with Tim's message on the
wiki) is probably sufficient.
If we feel the obligation to push announcements to the public, we could:
1. Create an announcements mailing list (but we'd still have to post
to the committee list and the announcements list, and it's ANOTHER
2. Open up the existing committee mailing list to anyone and make it moderated.
3. I could (I think) aggregate all of the addresses from all of the
lists and use that to send *occasional* blast messages to everyone
that is on at least one list.
