Found it after some digging:

http://www.kitware.com/blog/home/post/263

and upon rereading it, it doesn't really advocate anything specific
about mailing lists, just talking in general about a project
considering all of its constituents as a single community, rather than
two groups.

And in that view, one can even argue that a single community can still
benefit from multiple lists, much like the python developers have
agreed to have python-dev and python-ideas as a way of triaging
exploratory discussions form day-to-day work.

But that's the post I had mentioned to you: I probably read it
thinking about mailing lists as I went, which is why I think I
misquoted it somewhat to you.

Cheers,
