For what it's worth, there are (at least) two time-freq related mailing
lists currently.  tacgps at lists.tapr.org is focused mainly on GPS timing
issues, though its charter wanders quite a bit from that.  It's been
fairly quiet lately.  time-nuts at febo.com has a charter that maps very
closely to your proposal, though it's aimed primarily at
non-professionals in the field.  It's quite active with nearly 200
members and has a public archive.

You can subscribe to tacgps at
