Some of us have workflows that favor e-mail over those newfangled web
forums for reasons well beyond this thread. Please leave questions@
as it is. It is good enough, IMHO, and one of the better communities
out there in terms of technical knowledge and friendliness w.r.t. all
sorts of questions.

Oh, and as to many users not posting in a more focused manner
to -stable@, -current@, -hackers@ etc..., the reason is quite simple:
many issues are common to all branches, and there isn't a -common@
mailing list to address them. So questions@ is a pretty good catch-all
for those general questions, and not just for newbies.
