No.  fedora-devel-list was originally meant to be developer discussion
only.  End-user support does not belong here at all.  Unfortunately,
this list has been increasingly failing us for a few reasons:

- "developer discussion" is a gray area
- policing is a manual process of constant vigilance.  Effort today
leaves no lasting effects in a few days.

What if more list members helped in the policing, making it an actively
hostile place for end-users to post support questions?  I dunno...

Making any list actively hostile to end-users is a quick way to lose end-users. This is one of the reasons I no longer use openSuSE.
