> Jos: Right now, everyone knows everyone on the list, so requiring the introductions is a good idea. 
> Peter: there are currently 31 members on the list. We can request that each of those people send an introduction, and those that don’t get removed from the list. 
> Other Peter: if we could store those bios somewhere so that future people could also have that history and information about people on the list, that would be helpful.

Before you do that note that the list archives for this list are
currently public: https://lists.daasi.de/pipermail/fim4l/

That may be intended (and IMO appropriate for the kinds of discussion
I have witnessed or participated in so far) but how far you go with
this depends on the level of (public) transprency you're after.
So just mentioning it here to avoid surprises later.
