For new users? Will never happen. Put the mailing lists in the damn webpage,
categorising them if necessary, but having them so anybody can see them.
Furthermore, Org is so integrated in Emacs that a large part of the user
community would not be in a position to determine whether it is a problem
of Emacs or Org.

God does not exist, get used to it!  Look, if you put the various lists there,
people would use them.  Making things difficult only wakes people give Emacs the
finger rather than concluding the developers are smart.  Does this not bother
Gnu Admins?

As long as developers continue thinking they are gods. they will get
no respect.  Grow up and do it quick!
