No, multiple lists suck. I don't think that the discussions about the
OS and GCC are totally offtopic, though to some they might be spam of

dev_AT_ isn't only about concrete projects, but also about general
suckless philosophy. This has been the case for years. And there were
multiple attempts to introduce half a dozen of lists... in the end
only hackers_AT_ and dev@ have significant traffic.
