Yeah, that experiment hasn't seemed to work all that well for me
either.  Do you have another idea to try, or do you just want to
revert to the old way?

I'd vote for reverting to the old way. Anyone serious about hacking
should be on both lists.

Then why bother with two different lists?

If developers need to be on both list (which I beleive they do), and the focus of both lists is developers, then why not just remove one of them
and get rid of the problem?

One reason might be that a lot of application developers who develop
applications or modules associated with PG, but not the core PG code
itself also lurk on -hackers, as it's by far the best way to keep up with
the status of various PG enhancements (and also an excellent place
to pick up a lot of undocumented good practices).
