If I understand correctly, you are saying that boost developers would have
to subscribe to three lists to get support requests and feature
requests. That does seem counter productive. It is a pain for developers,
and feature requests it might be better if they went to the main list

One trick would be to relay the message through some boost volunteer's
email program (using the filter and forward feature in some email
programs). But that would probably be a failure prone kludge. Is asking
yahoogroups for help hopeless?
