The original motivation was to have a mailing list where we could begin
discussing DC14 planning while DC13 was still under way.  I think this is a
good idea in general.

Now that DC13 is over, the focus on both lists will be DC14, so it may make
sense to have everyone on a single debconf-team list.  However, I have no
idea if everyone who's subscribed to debconf14-team has also subscribed to
debconf-team.  Furthermore, as we're going through DC14 organization, I'm
finding that there are disjoint sets of topics that I want to send to either
the debconf-team list, or the local Debian social mailing list; this
suggests to me that it may actually be valuable to have separate lists, to
let people follow along with the parts that are relevant to them.

I would not like to drop the debconf14-team list in favor of the existing
debconf-team list, however, given the abysmal state of archiving for that
