I've been looking at the OLPC wiki, to see what we are advising
contributors to sign up for:
* http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Developers_program#Project_Hosting points
to http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Project_hosting which says subscribe to
devel@ when asking for project hosting.
points to http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Developers/Communication#Minimum_Communication_Requirements
which says subscribe to community-news@ and devel at .
