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. ~harring
