Maybe someone should keep posting this to devel and user every
now-and-again.  In fact, how about a charter to be posted to each mailing
list every now and again?  A 2k email every week might save quite a few
off-topic posts.

We could say what each list is for, and *not* for:

 - "newbie" packaging -> debian-mentor
 - bo/hamm  -> debian-user
 - slink -> debian-devel
 - policy -> debian-policy
 - flamewars -> /dev/null

etc. etc.
