I'd suggest that you initially set up a dedicated e-mail address which 
redirects to LATEX-L.

The rationale for the latter is that in order to establish a convention, it 
is seldom sufficient to just post the rules and set up the administrative 
machinery; one must also raise communal awareness of the convention. One of 
the most effective ways of doing this is to let members of the community 
observe how others are following the convention, but that won't happen if 
traffic goes to a list only seen by team members.

The point of having a dedicated email address is that if it later turns out 
that LATEX-L is getting flooded by this (IMHO unlikely, especially in view 
of how much LATEX-L traffic historically varies anyway) then you can change 
the forward to the team list. Or alternatively switch to some manner of 
digest format. Having a separate email address also simplifies regularising 
the postings before forwarding them, e.g. using a specific Subject heading 
to make it easier to search for these messages later.
