Over the entire weekend I received a little over 30 messages on this
list. I wouldn't exactly consider that high-volume or absurd.

I use both RSpec and Cucumber and I don't personally mind them being
on the same list as it allows me participate in discussions that
pertain to the full cycle of outside-in development. I can see where
you are coming from though since you only seem to care about the
Cucumber aspect of things. If the lists are split I will simply
subscribe to both.

A nice thing about having the two ML's combined at this point is that
discussions and questions which span the entire BDD process can be
asked and answered. The down-side of this is that not all folks who
use Cucumber use RSpec (or even Ruby).

I don't encourage the split, but I think it is becoming inevitable.
Cucumber itself is becoming large and wide. I can't think of a good
reason for Java programmers who want to use Cucumber to join the RSpec
