I think there should also be something addressing the underlying
problem(s). It seems to me that the main reason people want a
debian-newcomers list is because they don't want to see so many newbie
questions come along on this list. The actual problem is that the
system is not quite newbie-proof.

We, the experienced, ought to try and improve the processes and the
documentation, which would lead to less newbie frustration.

There's certainly a limit to how much you can document and hand-hold a
user, but we're not even close to that point yet.
