I've just been lurking on the list for a few weeks, watching for good
ideas for when I get the time/equipment to make a small cluster of my
own. But I would like to suggest that maybe rather than having a
debian-beowulf list _and_ a debian-ha list, perhaps one list
'debian-cluster' devoted to all clustering topics would address the
needs of a slightly bigger section of the userbase, especially since as
you say, a lot of the fundamentals are similar, like how to
install/admin multiple nodes, etc.
Just an idea,
