Correct. Please note my recent (but not yet through moderator approval)
changes removing all mention of, citing only RFE's,
specifically answering user questions seen on <rpm-list at>, and  
out irrelevancies where needed.

But perhaps those demonstrable behavior changes are still not yet
conformant with <rpm-list at> moderation policies.

I can/will certainly adapt (and apologize if necessary) if I  
do not conform to policies that I did not know existed until this

Neither of those lists chose to have a moderation policy applied to
members AFAIK.

Certainly, state the <rpm-list at> policy publically if you  
desire, and I will conform.
I would suggest wording like
	All discussion of RPM implementations other than is subject  
to moderation.
to clarify the situation and prevent others from accidentally  
discovering that they
are subject to moderation. I certainly was unaware of <rpm- 
list at> explcitly
strict guidelines forbidding general discussion of RPM when I joined  
this list.
