About the extra mailinglist

Ok so we have two lists now:
lfs-discuss: anything that relates to the book
lfs-apps: everything else

As soon as I get my other work done we will have this structure for the lfs 

lfs-discuss : Discuss only matters related to the book.

lfs-problems: If you have problems with your LFS system, use this list. This 
includes any compilation problems, getting non-lfs software working and so 

lfs-chatter: Use this list for your threads like the RedHat thread we had. 
Have general Linux discussions where LFS is still part of (ie: when you go 
and compare LFS with the rest of the world, have fun on this list).

linux: this list will be re-instated again. This is a list for general Linux 
discussion that has got nothing to do with LFS at all. Use this for your 
open-source threads and more of that

This means that lfs-discuss will become a low-volume list, lfs-problems 
medium and lfs-chatter and linux probably (very) high volume, depending on 
what is being discussed.

The only difference between the lfs-chatter and linux lists is that linux has 
nothing to do with LFS, whereas with lfs-chatter LFS is involved, somehow.

How does this sound? Reasonable enough or would a further break down of the 
lists in smaller chunks be more desirable (i may not do that though but I'll 
at least consider it).
