Here is a diff from AJ's proposal. I am now formally seeking seconds for this modified proposal, which has explicit guidelines for the most common case for not wantng the posts to be published.
---------------------------------------------------------------------- In accordance with principles of openness and transparency, Debian will seek to declassify and publish posts of historical or ongoing significance made to the Debian Private Mailing List. This process will be undertaken under the following constraints: * The Debian Project Leader will delegate one or more volunteers to form the "debian-private declassification team". * The team will automatically declassify and publish posts made to that list that are three or more years old, with the following exceptions: - the author and other individuals quoted in messages being reviewed will be contacted, and allowed between four and eight weeks to comment; - posts that reveal financial information about individuals or organisations other than Debian, will have that information removed; - - requests by the author of a post for that post not to be published - will be honoured; + - If the author makes a resonable case that some material is + sensitive, then that material is redacted from that post and any + other post where it has been quoted + + - If the author indicates he does not wish to be associated with a+ post, any identifying information is redacted from that post, + and any quotes in subsequent posts, but the rest of the material+ is published. - posts of no historical or other relevance, such as vacation - announcements, or posts that have no content after personal + announcements, or posts that have no content after information is removed, will not be published, unless the author requests they be published; - comments by others who would be affected by the publication of the post will also be taken into account by the declassification team; - the list of posts to be declassified will be made available to developers two weeks before publication, so that the decisions of the team may be overruled by the developer body by General Resolution, if necessary -- in the event such a resolution is introduced (ie, proposed and sponsored), the declassification and publication of messages specified by the resolution will be deferred until the resolution has been voted on. ---
