Only if you are only reading gnome.org lists.
If you are reading several projects' mailing lists, and they all
dropped the name of the project from the mailing list names, you
would end up with five lists called "devel".
I think consistency is more important. Having half the lists
end in -list and the other half not is a pest when deciding
to check out an archive and guessing the right URL.
I don't mind redoing all my mutt and procmail rules if it's
towards something more consistent. Well, I do. I just mind
less. But I do mind if someone just changes things because
