In my original proposal to this list [1] and in my subscription request to Gmane, I suggested that the lists be prefixed with gmane.comp.web.webkit., to match other similar projects. But I was told that Gmane groups cannot be renamed, so it seemed best to give all the lists the same (outdated) prefix.
