I just wonder what this list would be meant to serves which can't be deemed 
suitable for -mentors. Many upstreams (regardless they have any preliminary 
packages of their software or not) already use -mentors for entering Debian 
one way or another. It might be that too much separation might accidently 
introduce some confusion amongst the targeted consumers. I'm not opposing to a 
yet another mailing list per se, so please decipher that more like a question, 
rather than objection.
