Re: Publicly-readable list for only DDs and DMs to post to

One reason is that -private has a better signal to noise ratio than -devel or -project, and therefore people pay more attention to it.

The only @lists.d.o mailing lists I know that have worse signal-to-noise ratio than -private are -security and -user.

If you want to ask a technical question, but don't want an answer, or you want an answer that's completely wrong, -private is your best choice.

Or if you want to discuss a problem, but not actually fix it, there are dozens of people on -private eager to help you.
