Technical discussions started on -dev could stay there, of course.
Generally, trying to move a thread from one mailing list to another
won't work (and only lead to a discussion split between both lists).

The point is that the current scheme does not really work and we end
up discussing technical issues on -project where they are off-topic.
Two examples from today are the sub-threads about "signed commits" [1]
and "optional runtime dependencies" [2].
