Good comment.  I removed that sentence.  When I read that I saw the
"of BASH" part and that seemed reasonable.  The problem is that people
have different definitions.  If they were really talking about bash
itself then that would be fine.  Discussion of bash itself.  But
instead they are talking about all manor of other things that are only
vaguely related to bash.

In addition to that removal I added another.  To encourage use of the
new list help-bash I added the second sentence to this paragraph as
encouragement.

  The address@hidden is a different list for discussion of bash and
  shell programming.  If in doubt, post there first.

And in case anyone is curious as to what text we have been talking
about it is the text that shows up here, and related places:
