I think that is a solution to the opposite problem, where there are too
many people on a single list.

However, if there was to be a new list to replace an existing one, I'd be
happy to see a new 'sugar-discuss' list to replace iaep, continue
sugar-devel, and put the rest listed in http://lists.sugarlabs.org into
read-only mode.

Who else can set the dormant lists into a read-only mode?
