I formally (ish) suggested this about a month ago.

There were no objections - the only responses to the thread, which was
called 'Proposed (again) debian-legal' were supportive.

The charter of the group should be something like:

debian-legal is intended for discussions of legal issues affecting Debian. 
This will include discussion of whether certain licenses are DFSG-free,
non-free or non-US, as well as patent issues, and trademark issues.

The group should be open subscription, and be archived in the usual place.

Listmasters, please create this list.
