[bcollins@murphy(11:01am)-/var/list]%ls -d debian-*-changes
debian-all-changes/          debian-devel-changes/            debian-hurd-i386-changes/
debian-alpha-changes/        debian-devel-hurd-i386-changes/  debian-i386-changes/
debian-arm-changes/          debian-devel-i386-changes/       debian-m68k-changes/
debian-devel-all-changes/    debian-devel-m68k-changes/       debian-powerpc-changes/
debian-devel-alpha-changes/  debian-devel-powerpc-changes/    debian-sparc-changes/
debian-devel-arm-changes/    debian-devel-sparc-changes/

The lists already exist, they are just not used at all. Maybe it would be
easier to keep just the one debian-devel-changes list to send to and write
some extra procmail stuff into sending it to the write outlist.
