I wasn't aware of that (I'm not reading arch-general). I'd have said
it belongs there, but I might be wrong then. Sorry!

Indeed. As said I felt like arch-general is that place, apparently
it's not (I happen to disagree with that, though). It seems like
others agree aur-general isn't either... So what is? I don't know.
