I personally don't think it's productive to immediately push people towards the
mainline Debian lists. When trying to nurture people who might be hesitant
about the project initially, throwing them to lists that might not be as
welcoming at first sight would not help matters. Instead, I think that getting
these people used to doing some work and generally more knowledgeable about
Debian so that they're better prepared for these lists is a preferable
approach. Granted, they could ask the same questions on other lists, but they
came to this list for a reason, and that is why the list is here in the first
