Hi Kjetil,

Robin Gareus has made last year an interesting study on this matter. It
seems that the proportion of users that are subscribed to all three lists
is quite small. So cross posting announces on the 3 lists isn't such a bad

Now regarding the fact that not everyone knows they should post on the 3
lists, I don't really think that's the case. most announces I see are
posted at least on 2 lists. LAA is nearly always one of them. Some people
choose to add LAD and LAU, some choose to add also their project list.
