Well, people post stuff there that should go to "testing" instead. Just
look at the archives -- 50% of the user-initialized threads on
fedora-devel would be more suitable for fedora-test list. Heck it even
happens now and then that different threads on the same topic/problem
get run on both lists by different people.

The solution doesn't have to be to merge the threads. But maybe try
harder to enforce what lands on fedora-devel.

Then disable them and mark them as retired. People post there, sometimes
don't even get replied and get confused by all that.
