the cloud team makes the ACL for members available to other projects, I'll

were really strong objections to not doing it, would be to create an Azure
specific mailing list under the cloud team and use that as the maintainer
line. The important thing is that people that care about one cloud but not
the others don't get lost in the fog of automated mails.
