[Box-Admins] passing the baton

1.  Regarding having my blessing for Casey becoming the list manager for
the Squeak-dev mailing list: you have it.

2.  Regarding receiving the list administrator rights and passwords: If
the password Steve is using came from Cees I expect that means it has
been the same for a very long time now and it's probably a very good
time to change it.  So I think to simplify matters (at least simplify
them for Steve) I will take the responsibility for changing the list
settings including setting a new password and getting it to Casey.

Casey: Do you have a public pgp/gpg key?  I searched the MIT key server
for your current email address and couldn't find one.  Or is

So as far as passing the baton from Steve to Casey, regarding the
technical details, I will take care of it.  Do you mind Steve if we do
this sooner than 3 weeks from now if Casey is ready?

3.  Regarding the SOB:  I agree that the squeak-dev mailing list
administrator is within the purview of the box-admins team.  That said,
I think it's worth at least notifying the SOB that a change has
occurred.  Again, I will take care of that.
