Well, gnome-* is redundant, but list isn't, unless you're looking at all
the headers.  There are lots of email addresses, some go to
lists of people, and some go to just one person.  If we're going to go
around messing with all this, let's have a good plan.  Here's what I
come up with quickly.  

Email addresses should not contain gnome- at the beginning of
their name.
Email addresses intended for discussions (such as the current
'desktop-devel-list' and the 'gnome-list') should have -list appended to
their name.
Email addresses intended to reach a group of folks, but not necessarily
for discussions (like the current 'release-team' and
'membership-committee'[1]) should have -team appended to their name.
Email addresses that go to a single individual (such as the current
'director') should not have anything appended to their name.

I think that covers what we're using emails for.  Thoughts?
