Yes this is a good idea. I have taken a look at mailman and I can set 
the reply-to header to point to rtems-devel by default for both lists. I 
can also block posts to the list with a nice message stating the list is 
closed to posting and rtems-devel should be used.

I will look to have this set up by the weekend.
