Well, I don't have list archives available now to go back and quantify
the pmac messages.  It's enough for me to notice it.  Obviously, it's
not nearly as many as the endless embedded-specific questions.

In the end, I was merely asking for clarification for where various
messages go. If I cc: linuxppc-embedded with booke core changes I
don't want people bitching that it wasn't on linuxppc-dev and vice

Again, I ask, what is "general PPC development discussion"? Anything
that doesn't involve an embedded only processor? This includes classic
PPC discussion as long as it's not on an embedded board, right? But
not other PPC processors?

If you asked for the split, I hope you can provide some clarification.
