not everybody ( new people ) is currently in the mailing list
and usually, questions are answered in previous emails
and FAQs and websites etc..etc..
        - mailing lists should be searchable to be useful

people will come and go .... ongoing change of scene .. and people..
        - time constraints, $$$ constraints, technology contraints,
        family and vacations always make for project management fun

- i doubt we'd get barraged by incoming queries and "hey can you do this" 
  sorta thing... and add this feature and that feature...
        - they;d just have to add their "wish list features" to the specs
        and wait for the coders to get a "round tuit" and/or write
        the code themself

have fun
