I can't keep up with the xorg list, primarily because it serves as both a
development and user list, but also just due to high development traffic.
Thus, I tend to skim it quickly to keep up with interesting developments,
and not worry about missing things.
xcb, on the other hand, I normally try to follow (emphasis on the try,
sometimes, when I run short of time). In any case, I *never* mark a message
from the xcb list as read without looking at it, which I often do on the xorg
list when I have a significant backlog.
I have no problem with cross-posting messages when appropriate. Some sort of
cross-list whitelisting of subscribers would help here, to ensure that
cross-posted threads can always receive replies from subscribers of both lists
without breaking threading.
So: please do not merge these lists.
