Hallo dear Mr. Case and everybody,

my question is simple, would it be possible to create an amber
mailinglist strictly for questions about tutorial and installation as
well as other questions about how to use the program?

My reasoning is as follows: I like to stay informed about bugs features
and other important topics concerning amber or MD in general, but my
inbox is full of questions about compiling amber and why something in a
tutorial does not work. (example from today: "Hi I want to download
latest force field. (GAFF). Please provide the link to download. With
regards ...")

 From my experience trying to report bugs in amber, I also get the
impression that developers probably don't pay a lot of attention to the
mailing list, simply because of the amount of this kind of beginner
questions makes it very hard to differentiate between important messages
and the rest. Wouldn't it be sensible to split these two topics into two
mailing lists?

Just wanted to give my thoughts.
