The tools we have probably help make this even more of an issue.

Mark McLoughlin and Dave Neary suggested a path forward to merge the
public and private list, that requires QA and testing. I guess we could
create a mailing list and try things out to see if that option is still
viable or not


Is it worth proceeding? Any volunteer?

Regarding the repository for files, there was an effort from Infra team
to investigate deploying a couple of storage options but there was no
positive outcome from that investigation.  Maybe it's worth picking that
up again?
