this HAS been discussed before ... .  i don't find lynx-dev too heavy:
you can easily skip over items which are too esoteric
& one of my reasons for subscribing is to learn more about computing.
it is very important for developers to have real-life contact with users,
whose questions -- not always elementary or simple-minded --
provoke some of the genuine improvements to Lynx;
i try to do my bit by functioning as first-aid desk for such inquiries.
a single list means everyone knows where to post & which Archive to search
& the amount of traffic shows how useful the present set-up really is.
