We dont have many people yet agreed. But I still see the need to have specialised mailinglists.
For the end users it would be confusing having a constant feed of unecessary information
e.g kernel patches, uboot updates discussion on development boards when all they
are after is some easy information/updates on their userland or how to get
program X working.

And for me personally I would much rather have a list that gets patches 
every onceandawhile instead of having to sort through alot of different stuff
to spot patches.

Im not eager fragment information into different mailinglists but I believe its necessary.

With any luck we can skip the forum and simply have an mailinglist archive (linked from wiki).

I have no specific idea on a set number before opening the mailinglist only
thing is that it should be done before the first user-targetted nanonotes are sold.
