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