I've been caught posting to the wrong list a couple of times, so I should
probably put in a couple/few cents on the topic...

I keep forgetting exactly what lists are available, where to send posts to
exactly, etc.  This is my own fault/problem in the end, but with the way-the-
hell-past-crazy life that I am apparently in, keeping track of details (how-
ever important they might be), can be near impossible.  Here is my suggestion
for this problem: add a small section to the LFS web page that has a list of
all the mailing lists, what address to post to, and any other pertinent info.
If this has already been done while I wasn't paying attention, sorry in
advance :)
