For discussing long-standing issues with Metacity. Like the
focus-stealing problems, the placement algorithm or the (ugh!)
minimize animation. :) And for asking things like how do you implement
X in Metacity or like "I'd like to implement this awesome feature, do
you think it would be a good idea or not?" It doesn't feel right to
open bugzilla bugs for those kinds of things. Plus, it is easy to find
old discussions by search mailing-list archives. Not so easy with

Yes.. But some people migth be afraid to pollute the big
desktop-devel-list with issues that doesn't concern most of its
readers. :)
