Hi all,

personally I think this is a useful idea. The trick of course always is to
be recognized as the one list to rule them all by the other stakeholders.
I for one, know that maintaining the list as it currently is in the
epsiplatform was/is a pain to maintain, and I'd rather contribute to a
shared list that pools many different efforts, and then in turn show that in
the platform.

So, I'm all for it.
