ACK. So it seems more worth, splitting off several larger topics,
ie. development to separate lists, or even better discuss 
things that are not really gentoo specific (ie. bug-fixing within 
the package) on the upstream's list(s).

(At this point, I'd like to remind you on my distro independent
QM project ...)

ACK. Such an list could be useful.

*BUT*: it doesn't make any sense just talking about it. Simply do it
or forget it. Only talking is nonsense.
If I was admin, I would have set it up even before writing
this mail.
