I must say that I agree with Jean-Paul on this matter. For me, 
technical discussions and cvs are closely linked, and discussing one 
without having the other doesn't make much sense. Besides, there are 
already quite a lot of mailing-lists for the VideoLAN project.

But I'm not the average user or developer, so YMMV.

I also think that we should at least announce what we're working on. 
It must be pretty difficult for an outsider to know what is being 
done by who.
