Hmm...I see your point. I agree that there _is_ a need
to unify the community when it comes to open source
issues. Still, I always thought the linux/bsd mls are
even more specialized than our two mls. You might get
better 'bang for buck' on those lists if your
question/focus is the ml's reason for being.

Anyway, this is moot, it seems the two mls work as it
is...if it aint broke...

Unless and until there is a tipping point when many
people complain one way ot another, there's no real
need to split, I guess. Btw, about ossig being more
formal. Are you sure? It seems pretty laid-back to me.
Maybe that's a feature of open source people? :-)
