For me the maintainers list is way to noisy and I guess a lot of users
will see it the same way. Moreover I'm afraid that just because of the
name of the list as well as the location users will not even consider
subscribing this list (as I would never have done if I would not
explicitely asked to raise the Blends topic here). IMHO we have no
proper place to discuss the issues of multimedia users inside Debian and
that's a pity because we might loose users (and potential developers)
because of this.

So why not clarifying this on the debian-multimedia list properly (in
the mailing list description and a footer liner)?

I would be in strong favour of this.
