I'd vote for proposal 1 but can also live with solution 2 -- the
fedoraproject.org domain name in the list name is nice, but not worth
moving everything (I'm probably not the only one that has to adjust a
lot of procmails rules after such a move -- yes, thats easy, but still
annoying). I don't like 3. 

But while we are talking about maillinglists I'd like two propose two
other things:

- Remove the stupid "Repy-To" munging that currently happens on a lot of
lists. It seems to confuse a lot of people. See also:

- I think we should add "devel" to the name of these lists:
fedora-desktop-list
fedora-tools-list
fedora-config-list

No, this is not important, but it avoids confusion for the users. With
"devel" in the name it's obvious that this is for devel discussions.
Yes, there will still be people that don't get it, but that will always
happen.

These lists are quite in any case -- do we still need them?


Just my 2 cent.
