Dear all,

This is actually another interesting topic!
If we move for a more general mailing list on international 
development/humanitarian topics (not restricted to the HOT membership 
and partners), I would suggest maybe not to use the "humanitarian" word 
that is only describing a subset of this scope of activities.
Since development can be confusing with IT development, I would suggest 
something like international at openstreetmap.org

However creating doesn't always do the trick: we've seen it with the 
hot-francophone mailing list that was created to generate more exchanges 
between Francophone countries (in particular Africa & Haiti) on 
development topics and is not super successful because the communities 
we wanted to exchange with are not big fans of mailing lists for 
cultural reasons.
