If the kernel-walkthrough gets a lot of the traffic that makes it need
its own mailing list to keep it out of the "main" newsgroup then one
should probably go ahead and create it. But I don't really see that
happening, and kernel is Linux (a big part of it).
There are other mailing lists that relate to the linux kernel,
obviously, so this proposed mailing list would be for posts relating
to how the linux kernel fits in with SVLUG.And apart from
walkthrough-related stuff, I don't see quite the need for it.

Yes, because those that are interested in the politics of the group
can go there, and not the main svlug group. "Operations" that aren't
strictly volunteer-related but more logistical items, procedures and
so forth could go to an "operations" list.

Probably better suited to the main list or "announce" - installfest
coordination messages and other things could go to operations@ or
volunteers at .

I really don't see the need for these - yet. Technology and (of
course) linux are best suited to stay in the main list. "Main Meeting"
announcements of it (svlug-announce)
planning & preparation (operations & volunteer)
discussion about meetings (main list - and from my perspective,
there's not a whole lot of discussion going on about "the meetings"
(or installfests) other then the announcments for them.
Community & outreach should probably stay on the main list until such
time as need warrants their breakaway.
One problem with having a lot of lists (and Rick Moen will probably
agree) is the inevitable possibility of crossposting. For instance
someone decides to post something on a main svlug list but since it
pertains to installfests, he might decide to cross post to that group
as well, or conversely, he posts the (on topic) post to installfests,
then figures "well maybe someone isn't subscribed" so he posts it to
the main svlug list.
A separated-out linux list is, IMHO, superfluous.
