We really, really, really want a separate list :) And we will post  
regular updates on [grok-dev]. I am not too worried about the [grok- 
doc] list coming before [grok-user]. We have a clear vision of the  
whats and whys and we will be active on this list. By directing  
feedback from newbies to [grok-doc] we can hopefully catch the  
knowledge in organised docs rather than hanging around in loose  
threads. I think it will benefit a greater audience, including those  
who aren't accustomed to being active on mailing lists.

So, I humbly and formally ask for a [grok-doc at zope.org] mailing list  
to be set up for me, tim and steve to manage*.

* and no... it's not just to have our-own-pet-list(tm) for the sake of  
it, I promise! We really believe this is the right way to go :)
