I agree with Morten to the extent that I don't think the proposed
name(s) of the list(s) convey the distinction(s) between them that well.
Your explanation is clear enough but just looking at the list names it
maybe not be clear to everyone, particularly new list members who
haven't had the benefit of reading this discussion.
Maybe something like centos-support for the current list and
centos-techtalk for the proposed new list makes the distinction a little
clearer (I'm not a great one for coming up with names - my point is more
that maybe the current list name could also be tweaked to aid in
differentiating between them).
