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.
LFS ID: 1377
Unsubscribe: send email to listar at linuxfromscratch.org
and put 'unsubscribe lfs-dev' in the subject header of the message
