On the other hand, generic discussions about meeting planning, travel

I thought the IETF list was for discussion of things generic to the IETF.
As for the considerably more valuable discussion of gadgets and the like, it's
not uncommon for a community to have a separate list for irrelevant but
potentially interesting tidbits -- irrelevant to the reason for having the
primary list. An example of such related-non-relevant lists is '-offtopic'...
More broadly, we need to be careful to keep lists to the minimum, sufficient
set. Fancy tuning just creates more complexity is deciding what to post to.
