How does latency compare between the former and 2.4?

You have put out a lot of messages on the list with the subjects 
starting with words like "updates:," "updated:," "new section:," and the
infamous "redhat 7.3/8.0 support."  These are the kinds of messages that 
I think should be put on a separate list.  There is a lot of traffic on 
the list, and I hardly read it except when I'm having a problem.  I have 
this mailing list automatically sorted into a separate folder so that 
the traffic doesn't interfere with my normal e-mail reading (although my 
spam level is still higher :-) but luckily double-filtered).  Due to the 
traffic it is difficult to pick out announcements from you.

The Red Hat lists face the same difficulty but to a much greater degree, 
so they have a separate low-traffic announcements list for The Fedora 
Project, where they tell of new releases, updated packages, security 
alerts, ends of life, etc. 
<http://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-announce-list>  I was 
just thinking that something like that might be helpful to this list.

I probably wouldn't want to see every package that you build for Fedora 
Core 3 show up in a separate e-mail message, but maybe a message when 
you have completed your build of Planet CCRMA for it, any new packages 
that get added to the repository, subsequent updates (so that we know 
when to run apt_get), and removal of distributions from the repository 
(e.g. RHL 7.3).  Such a mailing list I would not sort out for reading 
when needed, but rather I would have it right with my regular e-mail so 
that I would know what was up in real time (which is what I do for for 
my Fedora announcements list, too).  I hope that clears things up.
