Subject Re: No dev-, user- lists for small podlings (was: Re: [PROPOSAL] Kitty to Enter the Incubator)

One point against this is that we have had a long-standing user list,
and it is the developer list that is new and growing.  People are use to
the user list already.  If we are going to combine the two then I
suggest we have a -user list now and let the developers grow out of
that.
