I see people voting 2 instead of 1 because of the presumed noise that 
would be appear if non-committers/members/pmc'ers/board'ers would be 
allowed on that list (i.e. 'users', 'supporters', 'evangelists' ... ;-)

Please bear in mind that community@ is not about specific projects nor 
technology, that it (yet) doesn't carry the connotation general@ has, 
and that general@jakarta has been able to live through the infrequent 
'help-i-don't-know-how-to-start-tomcat' question. Maybe it would be 
showing off our community skills if we have a list where our users and 
ourselves (the ASF'ers, whatever that means) can meet without fearing a 
http://jakarta.apache.org/site/idiot.html link ;-)

Also, please remember that one _has_ to subscribe - an initial burden 
that filters out the utter clueless people, I believe.
