This is a slight stretch. I counted 33 Debian lists the last
time I looked. I'm not subscribed to all of them, and I do not need
to be. I think taht debian-devel, debian-policy, debian-private,
debian-bugs-dist, and debian-devel-announce is all I need to
read. That is 5 lists.
I personally also add on debian-user and debian-announce, but
that is a far cry from having to read 33 lists. ;-)
I do realize that maintaing packages for Debian takes time. I
think I knew this when I signed up. ;-(

I do not recall this being the case.
