Fully agree: everything we'd post to "openstack-operators" would have to
be cross-posted to "openstack", which is proof that -operators is
redundant. It's a convenience list to keep traffic low, more than a
specific set of topics... and that doesn't work well (MLs should always
be defined by the topic of their threads, not by their audience or the
amount of traffic).

With proper tagging I'm pretty sure it would be manageable and could be
merged back. The trick being, since we positioned openstack@ as the
"default" list, a lot of newcomers post there and do not use proper
prefixes... which makes it more difficult to filter.
