All members of the foundation should be subscribed to the 'foundation'
list, as there may be announcements sent there and not to the
'committers' list, which is intended to be used purely to manage issues
relevant only to the committer members.

For instance, I sent an initial mail describing the overall election
process for all classes to the foundation list:

  2007-07-25   "New board elections"

and a reminder about the various deadlines across all classes:

  2007-08-23   "Board Election Status"

That said, which mail did you not get?   I sent the following mails to
the committers list:

  2007-07-25   "Nominations now open for board elections" (asking for

  2007-08-31   "Final reminder:  Board election nominations closing

  2007-09-08   "Committer board seat nominations" (here I announced
                that we had only two nominees, and asked for objections
                to the "by acclamation" process)

  2007-09-19   "Zope Foundation Board Election Results" (root of this

In fact, a quick review of the list archives[1] shows that all mail to
that list over the past three months has been either from me, or in
response to my initial postings.
