Urgh! I think this would be an error. There are often discussions on
gnome-components-list that are of no interest at all to
gnome-libs-devel, etc.

Also, by merging all those lists, you make it much harder for people
like myself to filter on the list title and then prioritise what we read
when. A lot of the lists you mention can be very high volume at times
and I don't want to have to wade through all of them just to find out
what the hot topic in gnome-libs-devel is today, for example.

Rationalisation is good, but the above proposal is only one step away
from just merging everything into gnome-list, imo. Group related things
together, for sure, but keep different categories apart, also, to help
people focus on their specific areas of interest.
