- actual discussion of the GR on -devel was completely swamped by all the other discussion of systemd

- folks have just now pointed to the -project list --- this is the first I've ever heard of that list - and I note that it is not even listed on https://lists.debian.org/users.html or https://lists.debian.org/devel.html -- only on the full list of lists, where it's buried without a description of what it's for
