The list is easy for users, but bad for developers. These lists contains 
cries for help, cooking recipes and other off-topic questions that a 
developer does not even need to read to be able to improve xfce4.

The bug tracker is a way of separating this fluff from the stuff that 
the developers need.

This list (it's xfce... not xfce-dev) is for USERS to discuss problems 
amongst each other. When they find out that it's a problem for everyone 
they should file a bugreport.

Meanwhile everybody is free to ask for help on xfce at, discuss 
how good and pretty xfce is, which are their favorite xfce developers 
etc... Since that is what this list (amongst others) is for. Please 
submit the true bugreports in the tracker meanwhile ;^).
