I am new to this mailing list having found out via http://women.debian.org/ I just visited the debian women wiki section since there is a reference in this email to another email from 2011, which contains the link. I do not feel I might have found this mail list so easily had it not been for thewomen.debian.org website. Which by the way can be found via a search engine. Anything with the wiki site isn't likely to be found as it's obscured within all the other wiki material. I'm thinking if promoting women in Debian and searching for new faces is a goal, keep the women.debian.org website operational
Just a newbie's thoughts
It seems my mail clients are sending to individuals instead of the mail list. My apologies for those are seeing emails twice
