Another suggestion:) It would be good to sort the lists into types (with 
the support being the most prominent one):

    * Support (lfs-support, blfs-support, alfs-discuss): Most users
      should subscribe. Don't expect replies via e-mail if you are not
      subscribed. Initial bug reports should be made here.
    * Development (lfs-dev, blfs-dev): Only for users interested in the
      testing & development of the book.
    * For Book Editors (lfs-book, blfs-book): For authors (and
      interested users) to track the book changes and bug reports.
    * Hint Authors (lfs-hints): For submitting hints only. No need for
      anyone to subscribe and definitely no posting unless you are
      submitting a hint. Discussion on blfs-support.
    * Misc (lfs-chat, lfs-test): Anything goes.

Maybe lfs-security can be eliminated since there is not much traffic 
there and the same things could be discussed on the support/dev groups.
