well, what topic is "community" supposed to have? it's rather fuzzy, i  
"support", "devel", "hardware", "device-owners", ... state(d) their  
purposes by their names, but in which respect is "community" different  
 from these?

if "devel" is rarely used, it probably is a sign, that the vast majority  
is happy about the broad range of topics covered here -- and maybe does  
not like the idea of subscribing to a lot of lists just to get the  
relevant informations for common usecases.
when in doubt, i vote for dropping devel in favour of community.
