I don't see the benefit of splitting the list either. uBlas is complicated
enough, that even the library users, almost by definition, are advanced
enough to understand and benefit from development discussions as well. Also,
many times, help messages morph into development discussions, and the line
is blurred. What would really be nice, is to have a good search capability
of the existing archives: unless I'm missing something, the official
archives page has no search at all, and the other aggregators don't seam
complete. Can sourceforge help in this regard? e.g. can all the historical
archives be imported into sourceforge? Or is google still our only friend?
