A counterargument though... projecting the number of unique posts to
all four lists combined for this year (both based on trending for
the past several years and also simply scaling the count of messages
this year so far based on how many days are left) comes out roughly
equal to the number of posts which were made to the general
openstack mailing list in 2012.

This was an option we discussed in the "One Community" forum session
as well. There seemed to be a slight preference for making a new
-disscuss list and retiring the old general one. I see either as an
potential solution here.

That was one of the arguments made. Also I believe we have a *lot*
of "black hole" subscribers who aren't actually following that list
but whose addresses aren't bouncing new posts we send them for any
of a number of possible reasons.
