Hmmm, I think one of the advantages of using CentOS is its helpful 
community. Besides the issues that were mentioned, do we really want to 
send people to other lists if we can "build knowledge" on the CentOS 
lists? By keeping things on the CentOS lists we'll gain topical experts, 
who can also be asked to write/maintain documentation in the Wiki.

If centos@ gets to overloaded, I'd rather vote for having, say 
centos-virtualization@ and centos-db@ lists. In that manner we won't 
bother upstream to much with questions that are CentOS or 
version-specific, and we can grow and keep expertise in the community.
