Not intending to stir the pot, but I think there is enough interest in this Census data to justify a separate list.  It's got it's own unique problems,  I would like it's name to reflect a more general nature about centerlines though, and be called something like street centerline list, but tiger naming seems to have a good amount of awareness to it already.

BTW, I've already joined the new list in case someone takes it down  :c)  A pair of users does a list make, right?

I'm not interested in any of the other data at this point, and discussing the Tiger stuff independently seems like the right course of action from my perspective.  It's easy enough to subscribe/unsubscribe to more/less lists, and it's usually a one time operation, so I say more and specific lists.

I'm copying the new list too, where the discussion can continue . . . .

My thirteen cents worth.

I'm against a proliferation of mailing lists. I don't think this is
neccesary: Why don't we just use the geodata list for this?
