The only wrong answer on the question of where to have this (or any other discussion) is to have it on two or more lists at once.

Crossposting is anti-social, confusing, and prohibited by most list guidelines (including the guidelines for DSSSList.

Cross-posting often counter-productive unless everybody who replies to
the thread is on both lists.  No list's archive will contain the
complete thread, cross-posts from non-subscribers continuing the
thread will bounce, and DSSSList subscribers who are not also on the
other list will only see half of the thread, as will those on the
other list who are not also on the DSSSList.  Subscribers to both
lists may see two copies of the message, annoying them as well.
