The Drupal Initiatives group is "invite only", so you can't really
sign up for it.

> There are also calls every two weeks between the initiative owners,
> Dries, Angie, et. al. to hammer out the more pressing things and
> generally figure out the details that cannot be worked out in email
> our issue queues. Angie plans to write blog posts with reports on
> what's happening at these meetings (probably to be published in the
> drupal initiatives group linked above or maybe on her blog).
> I'm not sure the development list is a good medium for these
> discussions. On g.d.o you can selectively follow the specific groups
> set up for the work or follow the main group overall. More importantly
> you can go back and participate in discussions which started before
> you became a member or became aware of the initiative even. This does
> not work in emails. I'm probably of the more prolific writers among
> the initiative leads on that group, and while I'm not sure I could
> reach the whole audience I wanted to, I think the group posts help
> keep the discussion focused and open. Many of the people who commented
> there with valuable feedback I'm sure not even members of this list.
