That reminds me... one of the things that came up at the workshop we did
at CHI in April (which I really will write up soon, honest) was that
GNOME doesn't have a gnome-users or gnome-help mailing list, where any
user can ask any sort of question and reasonably expect some sort of
answer other than "you need to ask somewhere else", which I see
increasingly often these days.

Is there a particular reason we don't have such a thing?  Obviously the
downside would be that it would be one more list for everyone to
monitor, but I can't help feeling that getting help on GNOME is
currently a lot more intimidating for a non-technical user than it needs
to be.  (Admittedly non-technical GNOME users are currently few and far
between, but we'd like to change that, right...?)
