It's up to you (the incoming Sentry community).  If you're not sure, though,
I'd suggest removing the user list request from the proposal and holding off
-- even if only for a week -- so that you can have a conversation about the
pros and cons on your newly inaugurated dev list.  That conversation is worth
having because it touches on some really interesting and subtle issues about
how communities around software projects grow and how to catch and hold the
interest of potential contributors.  Many podlings struggle with "community
growth" -- it was the number one issue reported as blocking graduation among
the podlings who reported last month.

Thanks, that's helpful.
