Some scribbles pulled from the draft Minneapolis Issues Forum post:
A forum like carag-forum could officially join us as "mpls-carag@" if they like (I helped start this one before I moved to Ericsson) and they think our rules framework is appropriate to their goals. We will not create duplicative forums where active forums exist and while we'd much prefer formal neighborhood association participation/endorsement if local volunteer capacity exists to recruit participants it is not required.
