The content of the advocate mailing list was recently clarified.
Paraphrased from memory: The advocate mailing list is for news and
action announcements from the campaign.  It is supposed to
be a low volume mailing list for postings only from FSF staff.

But there was some miscommunication and it was being treated as a
discussion list.  So for a while replies were being sent through.  But
now are replies blocked and moderators are redirecting them.

Karl asked the campaigns manager where replies should be directed and
the two suggestions proposed to the volunteer list helpers to redirect
people to were either for feedback about postings or
to gnu-misc-discuss if it seems they want to start a bigger
discussion.  Your posting was probably discussion and therefore it
fell to gnu-misc-discuss as the suggestion for the best place to
discuss it.

Is there a better mailing list to redirect people to for discussion of
free media formats?  I don't see an ogg specific list and therefore
the misc list was the default answer.
