I'll nab LLL and be the maintainer (unless someone else has their heart 
set on it).

I'll also put dibs on this one, as it could actually be fun.

What do we want out of a summary file?  One option is to approach each 
discussion as a project.  In that case there should be two files; an 
archive of all thats been said, and a file listing the purpose and goals 
of the group, along with specifications/decisions.

I'd like for there to be a quick little vote for new subjects/projects.  
If no one responds or there is immediate just cause the general 
maintainer can OK it and subordinate it to the instigator.
