No, but I don't think it is the same.

If LyX is to develop into a serious e-book editor, then this is a very 
LyX related discussion. Even users such as myself who are in no 
position to contribute directly to the development have an interest in 
how this develops. "Mere" users can eventually have an input into this 

It is not just a discussion about converters or bugs. It relates to how 
LyX will look and behave in the future. I agree with Steve and others 
that LyX could become major tool for writing e-books. As such, the 
discussion doesn't seem to me to be off topic.
