The concerns are understood, another option is to give the AB a private

strategy etc (and this is why advisory list has generally been closed
at other organizations I've seen).

This may be a less relevant concern here and we'd of course be happy
to change this if AB members wish the archives to be open but the
original setting of list archives as private was not an accidental
