Sure, I can do that.  Should I?

Per there are
currently 39 subscribers on the new list.  I guess most of those are
also on kernel-hardening, and would start receiving two copies of
messages that are posted to kernel-hardening.  I guess they would then
need to unsubscribe from kernel-hardening if they want to see the
content of both lists, or to unsubscribe from linux-hardening if they
changed their mind and only want the content of kernel-hardening.  I
think this is still not too many people, so this is reasonable; if we
were to do it later, we'd inconvenience more people.
