   IMHO, DJ hit the nail on the head. Those people who can't figure out to
post to gcc-help@ instead of gcc@ surely won't figure out to post to
gcc-newbies@ instead of gcc@ either. New name, same problem.

   If you ask me, we should rename gcc@ to gcc-development@ and maybe rename
gcc-help@ to gcc@. That way we'll catch those who post before they think
about where to post to, Nabble users or otherwise. The trick here is that if
they post before reading <URL:http://gcc.gnu.org/lists.html>, then they won't
even know that there is a list called gcc-development@ and it would
therefore be unlikely for them to post to gcc-development@.
