Johannes mail was received after I sent my mail. I wasn't aware of this

aur-dev 	Arch User Repository (AUR) Development
aur-general 	Discussion about the Arch User Repository (AUR)
aur-requests 	Public mailing list for AUR package
                deletion/merge/orphan requests

There still is the question if any of this lists can be used to ask
"usage" questions regarding software provided by the AUR or if e.g. the
comments should or shouldn't be used for this purpose.


When googling for "arch linux mailing lists" the third hit is:
Racists on the Arch Linux Mailing List

That's a nice "joke", sounds a little bit like an April Fools' joke :D.
