My purpose in posting to both lists was two-fold:
1) I want to support the effort to have a MetaPost mailing list.
2) I want to help keep `metafont at ens.fr' active.

I also would like to have postings on some subjects in the `help-3dldf'
archive, so I'd appreciate it if people would leave it on the "cc", if
it's not too much trouble.

I have generally tried to post on purely MP topics to the MP list and on
purely MF topics to the MF list, but things are usually not so clear-cut.
I sympathize with your desire to not have to cope with duplicate mails.
I, too, find it annoying to get multiple copies of postings (even my own),
and I know that opinions differ on cross-posting.

Perhaps the list administrators would like to make a decision about this.
