Sorry Josh, I missed this earlier ...
Very much an ack on this: the more contributors the better and the
idea of a team is a good one. I'm not so sure that we need a new
mailing list ... scala-tools@ seems just fine and I'd rather not
fragment discussions all over the place. Not to mention that quite
often there are overlaps or interactions between tools and it's good
that all the interested parties have visibility of them (eg.
Scala+Eclipse+Maven or Scala+AJDT+WTP).
So who's stepping up to the plate?
