Regarding the purpose of this list...

The list of lists page just says:
Development - A list for Drupal developers.

The list description says:
"The Development list exists for developers to be able to communicate 
with one another and discuss the technical issues around Drupal. Valid 
topics of discussions include code, patches, bug reports, and detailed 
suggestions for future code."

This appears to say that development questions are encouraged on this 
list. It doesn't say you have to be an advanced, core developer to 
participate or that you cannot ask questions.

And in general, we need to be welcoming in this community, and not 
tell new developers (who might eventually become core developers, 
contributed module maintainers, etc. with our support) to go away.

That's my 2 cents anyway...
