I tend to agree with you, actually.  The Fedora list, for example, seems to
work fine as far as I can see (most of the time, anyway), and I just skip over
anything that doesn't look interesting to me.

However, I can appreciate that some folks may not want to deal with the "noise"
and, when it comes to Centos, where else are you going to take it in that case?

I suspect that most of the discussion and question ask-and-answer stuff
currently dealt with here will migrate to the new list within a short period of
time, simply because it will be more free-wheeling and easy to post to.  This
list will become much less active and relevant if that occurs.

Accordingly, I plan to subscribe to both lists when the second one is created
and hope to continue to learn stuff.
