[CentOS] new list proposal

One thing that we are often blamed for is trying to stifle conversations 
and to discourage people from commenting / contributing / encouraging 
conversations. And that cant be further from the truth, really. We are 
all pro-community ( and when I say we, I mean everyone - including the 
contributors, developers, admins, users, abusers and hey upstream too ).

However, one thing that does get in the way, often, and something that 
we all feel creates a higher 'noise' ratio is conversations on this list 
about semi-related stuff, but not something that directly contributes to 
the general users of CentOS. Conversations that specifically address 
four areas:

- technologies
- best practices
- deployment strategies and tools
- management strategies and tools

And to better cater to these conversations, as well as further encourage 
such content, we'd like to propose creating a 'centos-tech' list.

Over a period of time, we would like to see the CentOS list become a 
more user help and distro specific list, with generic conversations 
moving to the centos-tech list.
