And making a hell-of-confusion :) Joking, of course... I tend to agree with
Brian and with the "guidelines" he gave when we opened the new subprojects
(back in 99, I believe)... It's just that since (now) cactus is not a
top-level project, it shouldn't have a top level Mailing List, but it should
be always be prepended by the name of the project in which it resides...

I believe that, if you developers want to be a "real" root-level project,
well, you have all the right to be... Did you have a vote on the commons
mailing list to "split out" ??? :)

Once the developers agree that they want to become top level, I believe that
it's only a matter of PMC "blessing" of that... I would be +1...
