I find it pretty hard to keep up with the samba mailing lists as it is
(along with other daily duties).  I'm not sure about creating a separate 
mailing list.  I find that too much time gets spent posting things like
"repost on the xx ml" when you get split up a lot.

It seems like most of the kernel sub-mailing lists I used to read got very 
low traffic and everyone just kept posting to lkml.

I know that printing can be a pain (believe me, i know), but i think
splitting resources (the people that field most of the questions) 
across mutliple lists won't help out much.

Of course, i could be wrong....
