I think the list you're looking for when you talk about only discussing
the base-system already exists (probably stable or arch). This is
freebsd questions- and the nature of the list according to the
all-knowing handbook IS for newbies, people who probably won't
understand the difference between third party and base.
there is freebsd-newbies for this.
this group is "freebsd-question" = questions about FreeBSD.
That's THAT simple, unless you like it to be more complicated.
