i agree.

but, maybe, there must be a review of existant mailing lists.
i am one of "the bad guy", but tecnically speaking there is some problem
on "givin' help":

let's see thread "Ethernet MTU".

if you follow both users and devel ml you gain two different and both
important point.

This is not about/against crossposting. It's more about general
thougtfulness when choosing a list to post to. In some cases it can be
useful to ask on both lists.

But I am not sure if your example is good, because I don't see who
replied from the users list, and who replied from the devel list in
this thread. At the first glancem this question seems to be clearly
devel, because it's exactly about future xen development. That's not a
user question, only and mainly developers can say something about

I just see sometimes people posting bugreports and troubles with
testing/unstable to the users list, and think that the developers need
to know that, not the users in the first place. In the end, users
using the devel version should read the devel lists, also :)

Still, I can live with it if more people think this rule should not be set up.
