I could see one additional list at first, something like debian-help for
people that have problems with something and the current debian-users for
general information exchange. Most might subscribe to the help list and
it would fee up the general discussion list for more in-depth discussion
of the pros and cons of different ideas.
To be honest, I would think that something like debian-help and
debian-install might make better newsgroups under linux.* than mailing
lists. Folks could read and respond from places other than their
subscribed emailing address and articles do no fill a mailbox.
Why is it that the same people that tell us that manned space flight
is a waste of money also tell us that we have been visited by aliens?
