Do you really want another separate team? It seems a bit fragmented to
me to have 20 different teams that don't really say much. Threads can't
cross between them well, etc.

I might think it better if we actually had more than .. 2?.. posts on
bzr-doc so far? And certainly bzr-windows and bzr-mac aren't exactly
focal points.

Then again, I'm someone who does manage to read just about all of bzr,
so my view is a bit biased.

I just feel that we went from 1 probably too-full list, to having it
split with merge-proposals, and now you've introduced 5 or so mini-lists
that I don't think many people even realize they exist. Maybe I'm wrong,
are the subscription rates high?
