	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.
