We have a debian-legal for the legal issues, although some of the
Apple license discussion transcends that, as it is a matter not just
of legal things, but politics on a broader scale.

I like the idea of a debian-discuss, which would carry the
'miscellaneous' traffid that -devel currently gets.  That way, devel
could go back to being for strictly technical issues.  This would, I
think, improve the quality of Debian, as more people could participate
in the tech discussions.
