Well, the thing about moderating the mailing list is that
all moderators see the same queue, which is usually empty,
and therefore most of them conclude they don't need to do
anything. Is there any way to set a up a round-robin-like system
which allocates a fraction of the messages to each moderator?
I don't know, I;m just guessing. If anyone has some ideas, I'd
be glad to hear about it.

I think the mailing list moderators (there are about 5 or so) have the
ability to appoint other another moderator. Failing that, maybe
maybe the project administrators (again, there are several) can
take some appropriate action.
As far as I'm concerned, anybody who sees something that needs
to be done, should go ahead and do it. That seems more effective
than trying to identify the "right" person.
