Regarding this, my personal (weakly substantiated) perception is that people are migrating to sexier forums such as stackoverflow to get the same help. For instance, 5-6 years back I could get about 1 question a week about Boost.MultiIndex on the users list. Now it's like 1 question every 3 months here, but 1-2 a week in stackoverflow instead. Blame the crude interface a mailing list provides, registration entry barriers etc.

As for the decline in the dev list, it looks more serious and there's no migration theory that could mitigate it. Also, I feel like the maturity level of discussions has fallen :-(
