I'm inclined to agree -- this list is a fine place for issues related to 
developing MIT Kerberos, or for issues specific to the MIT API.  General 
questions should probably go to the kerberos list.

The traffic on the kerberos list is significantly higher than here.  I am 
subscribed to both lists.  I read this one very nearly every day, but I 
haven't had time to read kerberos at mit.edu for almost a year.
