I agree that there is a risk that it doesn't work perfectly, but I
suppose it will work better then now.

There was also the idea to make it moderated fo ever (which IIRC ubuntu
did for their major devel-list) for non-developers (witch should
includes upstream developers or people developing somewhere in the
Linux-space), but some people didn't like that due to the work that will
be needed for it.

Well, I'd say "support from those on the list" is the better approach.
Just like in #fedora-devel on freenode you even for easy questions
should not get more detailed answers on lists than "your question is
off-topic here; go to list foo instead".
