I agree. A lot of people (e.g. colleagues in my company) are
interested in cross-compiling on Debian, but not necessarily in
any other aspects of Debian development. As long as mailing
lists do not have e.g. standardised tags for automatic
filtering, we need to use specialised mailing lists, even if
there is not much traffic.

Note: I assume, that debian-cross will not only cover
Debian-to-Debian cross-compiling, but also cross-compiling to
other targets, e.g. Android, 8-bit-microcontrollers or
proprietary systems such as MS Windows. Please correct me, if
I'm wrong.
