generic lists are more suited to, as you pointed out LUG's and social 
groups - this is a fairly product/ platform centric list. Besides, 
talking about the platform it would be hard to say that this is a very 
narrow focused list. the ppc-on-cell-bootloader list might fit that 
mould quite well, I dont think the CentOS list does.

Its more than a bit disheartening to see this list compared to a LUG 
effort :(

Thats looking at things, much like many others did, from a personal 
perspective and not one of the project / list admins. I might want the 
list to go in a specific way, but that may or may not be what's good for 
the longer term health of the list.
