IMHO, Mailing lists are essential to development like pencils are the  
"quickest" way to sketch out and idea. I really think this is why  
Apache is so successful as a unit, they have not thrown out the good  
old drafting boards that have worked for 1000's of years.

I think mailing lists also help keep out drawings that aren't meant  
for the drafting board. (IE newbies asking how to sharpen a pencil)

So my point to you is that mailing lists are the 21st century, they  
are the pencil to the idea. You are confusing the fact newbies "use"  
what is designed. We "design" what they use.

I bet there are a lot that agree that mailing lists for this type of  
work is essential, even if you won't agree with me in public. ;-)
