I'm usually there (as Boogie), but I think there are topics, that can be 
discussed better on IRC, and there are others that fit better to a 
mailing list. So - as I like #perl6 very much -, I still think, that we 
need a mailing list for "trivial" and general programming topics.

Topics both on the IRC channel and on the mailings lists are "high-level" 
ones, and not for beginners. I think, a new mailing list would be good for 
get some new members for the Perl 6 community, too, where they can ask 
basic questions.
