12 Well I think there's been a consensus that project is for non-technical
13 discussion. Usage policy for lists would seem to fall under that.

29 That sounds like an effective use of dev-announce, although it would make
30 more sense to keep it as pure announcements, which would mean reply-to
31 would be dev. Otherwise, it could become the public dev-only mailing list
32 which was proposed for this list, and there was definitely no consensus
33 established for that move.
