But I sometimes send questions about DocBook Modular Stylesheets there, because there is no list about these stylesheets. Let's create one :-) Many questions on firstname.lastname@example.org are about the DocBook Modular Stylesheets. Strictly speaking, they are off-topic, but the people who post them have two excuses: - many people do not understand SGML and did not get that the Modular Stylesheets are not part of DocBook, and that you can process DocBook without them. - there is no list for the Modular Stylesheets. > And someone else just recently suggested splitting the DocBook > list in half (DocBook DTD/Schema questions vs. DocBook > stylesheet/formatting questions). IMHO, the traffic is not enough to do that. Wait until it becomes near to unbearable.
