If such a mailing list is a flop, it will be closed soon.
There is a fair chance that the mailing list will _not_ be
a flop, and yet add the cost of some extra fragmentation.
So there is a concern that even a successful mailing list
may not be a Good Thing. (see below)
But fighting it down, before it was tried to organize things better with
such a list, is counterproductive. The original question obvious
intended to find out how many people would be interested to join such a
list and how it can be created. But the way the discussion runs does not
encourage women to join work. It is even for me frustrating. And I have
no fear to join the Debian Mailing lists, make suggestions and help with
work on Debian project (wich was lot of work but nice, yes).
There is a dilemma here.
1) We would all like to be positive and welcoming to initiatives
that spur new activity and recruit new contributors.
2) a) We don't like fragmentation and duplicate effort.
b) Debian Women is an enabler, an incubator. Some
Debianistas would like D-W to become redundant¹.
