A da-manager list would be a very bad idea. We do not want
people's rejection from Debian to be archived in a public list which
anyone can see. Imagine if searching for your name in google had "Luca
De Vitis is unsuitable to join debian due to ..." as its first hit?
If people who have been rejected want to bring the reasons why
they have been rejected in a public forum, then it should be their
choice, not Debian's.
Having others as open lists might be interesting as well, at
least from the aspect of letting people interested in helping figuring
out what's going on.
