With this kind of collaborative project I don't think it's helpful to 
try to create a division between 'techos in charge' and 'users'. Most 
people have some elements of both, and most so-called 'users' are quite 
capable of becoming 'techos' if they wish.

PS for what it's worth, I agree with you about the list reply policy, 
but at least I can see there's arguments on both sides.
