Hi Johannes,

We already have DShield-Announce, DShield-Current, D-Shield-Intrusions 
and this one - only one of them (this one) has any traffic whatsoever. 
There was a brief discussion a couple of weeks ago on what people felt 
was the purpose of this list and the consensus seemed to be that people 
got general security information elsewhere, and specific operational 
information for DShield, firewalls, logs etc. here.

I would be inclined to do almost the exact opposite of what you're 
proposing - collapse the existing lists into this one.....
