Hehe.. about an hour after reading this thread I got another one of those SF-centric help wanted emails. It was sent to volunteers-sf-announce with this blurb:
The San Francisco Burning Man announce list was created to provide an announcement forum for Burning Man-related events in the city of San Francisco. While some events may still make it to the Jack Rabbit Speaks, most events in the city, such as theme camp fundraisers, classes, garage sales, and the like, will be kept to the San Francisco Announce list.
I'm not sure how I feel about BMORG and BRAF seperation. I suppose there are advantages to either configuration, seperate in title and legal sense only or seperate entities run by seperate groups. It's probably best to deal with specific items that could be changed rather than expecting some wholesale change in their mode of operation.
