Just to throw in my 2 cents here:

I've been trying to help improve IRC support using the #fedora channel
of late. I think we have made some progress. One of the things that I
think has helped is to point folks who are not people with fedora
related questions (Or those willing to assist them) to other venues. 

I think this could be useful for the mailing list as well. 

I would note that currently the fedora lists says: 

"fedora-list -- For users of Fedora"

Which is a pretty wide open topic list.

I would suggest one of: 


or something like those. Alternately, we could look at reusing the
fedora-list, but then make a 'fedora-offtopic' or 'fedora-defocus' or
'fedora-advocacy' list for the non support lists. 

Also, it would be good to narrow down the topic
such as: 

"Peer support for currently supported Fedora Releases" 

I would love to see this setup and added into a Support SIG with the
IRC helpers so both groups could share info and try to improve support
in both places. 

Any takers? I would be happy to help some, but my time is pretty
streched already.
