So the need for a new list is to compete with the big 
boys rather than improving the CentOS community? Those
are full-flavoured distros with hundreds of thousands
if not millions of users. Last time I checked the
average Fedora user would not need more than the
fedora-list and the un-fragmented fedora forum.

See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Communicate and tell
me which of the many lists at redhat a typical user 
needs? Even something as global as fedora has not
considered such a liberal idea as that proposed.
