...and misunderstood (or portrayed) as a transparency issue, when the 
answer to your question on who is moderating the API list can readily be 
found at and needed no 
further discussion.

- List the mailing lists.
- Mention the -owner address for each.
- Add a link to the JIRA issue with the moderators names (like above). 
That issue will be reopened if we need to change moderators. So this 
will cause no overhead and require no maintenance at all.

This would be a perfect solution if INFRA had not asked us to use an 
internal tool rather than JIRA for mailing list requests. So in future 
the moderator names might be in some commits that might not be visible 
to everybody, but they will still be visible to all committers or so, so 
not really exclusive...

BTW, to me the information "Who are the moderators of the XYZ mailing 
list?" is public but largely irrelevant. I e-mail the -owner addresses 
when needed and I'm OK with it.
