I understand that it is easier for *you* to do things your way. The
way I want the mailing list setup is the same used in Gnome, and that is
what *I* personally want the setup to be. We can argue about which one
is best, but so far I fail to see the point. I have told you how you
can fix and improve things. Its your turn.

No. Many other people would be subscribed to mono-devel-list, those
sharing your same interests for example.

That can be argued, and I have no strong opinion yet on that. But I
feel that anyone in mono-hackers should have post rights to
mono-devel-list, so the patch is still required.
I have requested the sysadmins to create the list, but it wont be
enabled until you send me the above described patch.
