I'm a little uncomfortable with there being a TEI-council-secure list. I 
realize there would be utility in it, but I fear there might be a 
temptation to use it for purposes other than pure security-related 
issues, and after what happened with the Board this year, I think 
transparency is very important for us at the moment.

I vote for identifying the subgroup of council that need to know 
security-related information, and taking the discussion onto Skype, 
which would be more secure than email of any sort, anyway.
