I have not specific preferences about lists, I simply would note that
pkg-grass-general/devel were born at the time to manage a low traffic
packaging oriented list and listmasters had the opinion that alioth
lists were appropriate for that. That said, I would also note that
current -general list is closed to subscribers, while debian-gis
would be open to the world (as generally done for all listmasters lists),
with obvious consequence for subscribers about spamming...
