It is generally not advised to cross-post between private and public 
lists - board list participants might find themselves inadvertently 
posting private comments to a public list, or they may find their 
comments posted for them by someone else who replies.

You could cc it to, say, the wicket-private list. That is a private list 
that you are subscribed to, which means at least _some_ people will be 
able to confirm that the message has been received on board@.
