I understand your point, but on the other hand it seems to me that quite 
a lot
of people are afraid posting user related questions to the dev list or 
maybe I am just the only stupid one or maybe not digging deep enough person.

I would subscribe to both lists of course ;-)

Maybe it would be a good idea for other future incubator projects not to 
call a mailing list *-dev if there is actually just one mailing list at 
the very beginning.

On the other hand I am not sure how other people react and feel about 
the "dev" within the mailing list.

Anyway, I guess we just need a bit patience into both directions and 
then this project will blossom very nicely, because I think it's a 
really nice project with fine devs behind it.
