This does not work (unless you volunteer to do the job; I did it for three
days and it was already quite a lot of work despite the fact that almost
80% of all posts already went to gnome-private).

What about the following:

At the end of November, the newly elected board will appoint 2 or 3 people
who read over all the archives of this month to remove all confidental
material and then insert it into the open gnome-hackers archive ?

This is much easier than moderating, especially since moderating a list
requires the moderators to check for admin requests every few hours. It's
way easier to read over one large file.

And the board can also decide what should happen with the archives of
October, September, August, ....
