Re: How does anyone keep up with this list?


I don't understand why we don't just split the list up a little. Perhaps
we could have a section that just dealt with debian specific things(apt,
dselect which should probably be a list on its own) one for package
maintenance, etc.  I know there are many debian lists already but judgeing
by the ammount of traffic on this list I would say that something really
should be done.
