[X] Change the FSA to use the new membership list

We should probably denominate these with letters like we used to. The asterisks aren't really doing it for me. ;)

URLs are backend agnostic. It could even point to a list kept on
gitlab, if that's what needed. The language is intended to settle a
specific location where the publishing happens but not in any way it's
mechanism. So long as future websites can mkdir and touch lists.txt
there should be no issue with having this language in the FSA.

I don't like git because it forces a lot of work onto a committee that
is already not capable enough to handle the tasks before it. Today
we're struggling to get passwords into the hands of non-developers, and
likewise this would put important clerical work out of reach of many
possible contributors and future committee members.

But I take the point seriously about auditing. Fortunately we don't
have to decide any of the specific mechanisms in this vote. To make it
easier for us to get this step done and move on to the substantive
discussion of mechanisms next.
