Mauro and I were discussing this face to face at the Linux Plumbers
conference...

What we would like to do is leave the video4linux and linux-dvb
mailing lists as user lists, create a new -devel mailing list, and
redirect v4l-dvb-maintainer to the new list.  (Probably hosted on
vger, but that hasnt yet been determined)

The devel list would be an open list for developers only.  Any
tech-support related stuff would remain on the lists that are still
used today.

Specifically, we wanted to move the "v4l-dvb-maintainer" list to
somewhere with spam filtering and turn this into a list where all
development discussions and pull requests can take place.  We want a
separation between user requests and developer discussion, so merging
everything into a single list is not the direction that we want to
take.
