You know, I just realized while I was tweaking the dashboard that 
another reason people might be getting the mistaken impression that 
http://groups.drupal.org/drupal-initiatives is intended to stifle 
discussion (other than "invite-only" which, as mentioned, is required 
for an announcement list) is because of the previous group description 
that was there, which had some kind of weird language in it probably 
gave this impression.

I've just edited it to mostly say what I said in my previous mail, which 
is certainly what the *intent* is (a curated *invitation* for community 
discussion on the most important stuff).  I think that old description 
was made back when we were still kind of figuring out communication 
channels and we didn't really know how we'd be using that group. Sorry 
about the confusion, there.
