From my standpoint, -project was created purely to bannish threads of
pointless bickering to; -council theoretically *should* serve a
purpose, but the cross posting crap really limits that.
I'm well aware there are RFC's out there, and some folk w/ strong
opinions that cross posting is the path to hell- that said it's *very*
useful for getting folks attention, keeping people in the loop.
If there is to be no cross posting, then -council ml is kind of
worthless. As for -project... from a growth standpoint we probably
need to keep the two seperate although I personally do not find that
divide to be useful.
My 2 cents, as it were.
