There's a subset relationship: often sugar stuff is relevant to
general developers, but there's also (say) linux kernel stuff which
isn't of interest to sugar GUI hackers on devel at .  Historically, I
think GUI-only stuff has stayed on sugar@, and only gets cross-posted
when it touches "core system" issues.

Many people subscribe to both, and have sane email clients which
suppress the duplicates.  I use gmail, and rely on the 'sugar' tag to
give me a summary overview that the indicated message has something
related to the UI in it.

I don't think we need to merge the lists, nor do I think that
(limited) cross posting is harmful in any way.
