Hmm.  Yes,  it seems that some don't understand that debian-user is meant
for the current stable tree,  and debian-devel is meant for work on or
problems with the current unstable tree.  I refuse to suggest renaming the
lists.  Perhaps http://www.debian.org/support.html should include
something to this effect -- I note that debian-devel isn't listed there...
IMO all the publicly-available lists should be there,  with a GOOD
description of what each is for.

Your suggestions for how to get a good response from a help message were
excellent.  We oughta send a copy to people when they subscribe or
