FWIW, I am the administrator of the gtk-list, and my role has always
been checking the queue of pending messages to the list. Some eons ago
I requested to pass the list to the moderators team, with no response

When I stepped in, I think that was the role it was always expected for
the list's "moderator".

The thing is, I could barely moderate the behaviour in the list if I
unsubscribed myself of such list several years ago (more than 5 or 6,
for sure). Whenever I need to figure out something, I read (or search)
the archives.

My understanding is that many in the moderator team (or as it was
originally proposed) did not need to be subscribed. Even more, it was a
way for newcomers to get involved.

During the board meeting no one mentioned the existence of a moderator team. I don't think the current Board knows anything about it. Can you point us to information about it (if any exists), or give us some background (if there's no documentation)?
