I've also asked myself again this question about isabelle-users vs. 
isabelle-dev, when looking at the message for 2min, but considered it is a 
boundary case that could go either way.

In practice it is also a matter of the size of audience.  There might be 
yet unknown library contributions out there that could be joined in such 
efforts.  So there is definitely a tendency more towards isabelle-users.

(Oddly isabelle-dev appears to be much more active recently than 
isabelle-users.  Are there fewer users or fewer user problems now?)
