The working group was ostensibly relaunched in October: http://blog.okfn.org/2013/10/15/open-legislation-working-group-relaunched-at-okcon/
If you apply to the second group, I would be surprised if you were not admitted. I don't think they hold very strongly to keeping it a closed group, more for defending against spam than anything else.

>> Is it a question of content or is the mailing list an outdated tool for discussions (sorry, no offence towards all those who have started this group; I know that many open source groups still rely on the good old mailing list, but just wanted to ask). Would you prefer a blog/wiki or rather a discussion group like in LinkedIn?
>> Please let me know! Any proposals are highly welcome!
>> Two thoughts: (i) you could provide a steer on what sort of things are going to be discussed/you want discussed; (ii) and also some idea what sort of people might be on list.
>> Mailing lists are like all such media a compromise. Too little traffic and they aren't much use, too much and we have to unsubscribe or face overfull inbobxes.
