Yes, the list names must satisfy GNU conventions.  And the consistency
of the overall GNU mailing list names has a precedence over old list
names of a particular subproject.

OTOH you can find all GNU announcement lists in a single place.  And
according to the GNU conventions, the lists info-PROJECT and
help-PROJECT should always exist if there are any mailing lists for
PROJECT there at all.

real programmer?  don't get me started.  if you need to hide your
pathetic excuse for a carreer behind super-macho languages like C, C++,
and/or Perl instead of writing clean, maintainable, efficient code, you
aren't much of a real programmer in my view.  -- Erik Naggum in comp.emacs
