[governance] IGF MAG 2018: NO NEWS

I have reconstructed Mailman archives out of messages collected from
sundry sources. It is doable, sometimes even easy, sometimes harder,
depending on various factors like whether you can get the messages
"raw" (including all headers) or if they're only in some webmail-only
things without even any download option other than cut'n'paste or
saving as html.
If people feel reconstructing the old list archives would be worthwhile,
I might give it a go. If you want to help in that and have a larg(ish)
part of the archive, drop me a line describing what you have, or actually
preferably just the headers of the *earliest* list message you have.
In any case,
Happy new year 2018 to all!
