It always seemed to me that people want to send threads to -project for
them to just go away. Once a thread goes to -project, it just whithers
on the vine and nothing much happens. There may be a need for -project
but if almost no one is going to be there, there is no point sending
threads to it. Maybe developers should be required to subscribe to
-project so that even if a thread is sent there, they still get to see
the postings and deal with the issues that are being raised.
