Subject Re: email lists: too many or not enough?

Ya, if we keep general@ to it's intended purpose (and better document/enforce the use of various
lists) then there is no need for a new list.  I'll make the edit's Owen suggested to the revamped
mailing_lists.html.

I'm still confused, however, where release discussions should happen.  general@ or common-dev@?
 I guess I'll leave them on general@ unless this is enough opposition to that.
