I want to jump in but I can't because z.cash has no mailing list.  A
mailing list is needed because it allows participation by individuals
for whom any low-latency Internet access, such as posting to the web,
would allow them to be located and brought under political
subjugation.  Their Internet utterances can only be by way of
anonymizing remailers having long random latency and traffic mixing.

I am a reputable nym [1].  But, true to the privacy principles
motivating zcash, I choose to remain untraceable.

An email gateway to https://forum.z.cash/ would make a good mailing
list, and seems to be supported by its underlying platform [2], but
subscription is only open to those already registered on the web
forum.  Registering to the web forum is only by web access which has
low latency and is therefore traceable even if through Tor (by
end-point traffic correlation).

Help!
