The Wiki documents these lists as:
haskell at haskell.org
Announcements, discussion openers, technical questions.
haskell at haskell.org is intended to be a low-bandwidth list, to which
it is safe to subscribe without risking being buried in email. If a
thread becomes longer than a handful of messages, please transfer to
haskell-cafe at haskell.org.
haskell-cafe at haskell.org (archives)
General Haskell questions; extended discussions.
In Simon Peyton Jones' words: "forum in which it's acceptable to ask
anything, no matter how naive, and get polite replies."
I'm not sure I understand your sentiment - if you wish to avoid
announcements or the initial bits of discussions, surely you would be in
favor of not cross-posting them?
A quick (and probably highly inaccurate) count in my inbox tells me that
a little over 700 of about 1200 mails to haskell@ were crossposted to
-cafe, and the latter has received 21000 messages in the same time
Could we not accept the 2.5% increase in traffic that the remaining 500
messages would mean, and get rid of the cross-postings?
If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
