[LinuxDVD] Why two DVD mailing lists?

Can't we merge this two mailinglists? I assume we are working on the same
things, and in fact many recent postings where crosscopied to both lists.

I second this. I've been getting three copies of a single message 
sometimes (linuxdvd, lividdev, and a personal To/CC copy). It's 
getting rediculous. This is a general mailing list. Deals with 
issues and developments of interest to everyone involved with a 
linux based dvd project. Livid list is for livid specific discussion. I 
think a good number of people subscribe to both lists so there is 
no real danger of people missing something if it is posted to just 
one of the lists.

Regarding to their webpage Livid is in general as open as we are, and not
bound to a specific hardware or project. They are now focussing on the
Matrox, but are open for other hardware.

I think there should be only one list. The traffic on both lists is not
that big, that one can't handle the few messages he might not be interested
in.
