Archives should go to the dev list, users@ would be a new list. As to 
subscribers, we could do either - new list, no subscribers, or subscribe 
all current subscribers to this new list.

I'd probably go with the second - subscribing all dev subscribers to 
users@, and giving folks the option to unsub as required.
