I think the default behaviour should be to keep the post private, not to
open it up. That is, if the author and other individuals do not reply,
the message is kept hidden.

The primary reason for this is that the existing messages were sent to
debian-private with an expectation of privacy. Folk that have changed
address or become otherwise not-immediately available may still care,
and the principle of least surprise should apply.

We can however change the expectations for new messages being sent to
debian-private, and in 3 years *they* would become public by default.
