	There is a difference between public lists and widely
 advertised lists. Debian devel happens to be not widely advertized
 (as, I think, is right).

	Note it never says these are the *only* public lists. (In
 fact, there _are_ other lists. Their existence is spread by word of
 mouth, like you are learning now about debian-devel. Tends to keep
 noise levels down, and people wanting to know how to make windows 95
 tuned better for doom
