I tend to disagree ;-)
Some years ago, I was subscribed to opensuse-offtopic@ for maybe a week,
and trust me, it was *really* off-topic. (No idea what's going on there
nowadays, feel free to subscribe and find out.)
OTOH, most mails in opensuse@ are related to openSUSE and not OT.
Nevertheless, the opensuse@ list is a bit special - my impression is
that most discussions there end up with > 20 replies. While this isn't
wrong or bad, it can easily scare a newbie asking for support ;-)
That's why I agreed with creating opensuse-support@, and like Simon, see
it as least worst solution. Those who ask for support there usually get
it with a small number of replies, and that's exactly what I expect from
a support list. Question. Answer. Done.
This doesn't mean that we have to ban support questions from opensuse@,
and the people asking there are probably aware that the opensuse@ way is
"Question. Many answers." ;-)
