Thanks for your reply.  I wanted to know why you referred to the
CentOS forums in relation to the subject of splitting the mailing
list.

I can go on with my response to your personal view, but doing so would
be way off-topic here in this thread.  Therefore, I started an open
discussion session in the right place for this topic - not
surprisingly - in the CentOS forum:

http://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?viewmode=flat&topic_id=16821&forum=18

So, people who are interested, please join in and post your comments
and thoughts.

Thanks,
