The incidence of people stating "I am not subscribed to mailing list and 
so please CC me" has *slowly* started appearing on the lists. IMO, not 
subscribing to the mailing list is a pardonable offense, but not 
subscribing to NGs is not:)

    * I would like to suggest merging both the mailing list and
      newsgroup sections in Chapter 1 into one single chapter to bring
      home the point that they are identical.
    * Both the mailing list and the corresponding newsgroup can be
      referred to in the same way (e.g. at for
      the ML and for the NG; for convinience & historical
      reasons, lfs-dev can be aliased to
    * Now this one is slightly controversial, but maybe the digest mode
      can be removed. The traffic on the lists is not very high. This
      will help in proper threading of replies. For people who prefer
      reading everything at one go, there are always the archives.
