Minh's recent posting activity on slug has been as follows:
Sept. 4: Asked if there'll be a September installfest. (Craig answered by
reposting his announcement from two days prior.)
Sept. 5: Asked if installfest volunteers were needed. (No on-list reply.)
Sept. 6: Asked if there's an scp compatibility between OpenSSH 1.2.6
Sept. 14: Asked about "/" as a directory-name character in Unix.
Sept. 15: Asked about rotational backup schemes. (Two follow-ups.)
Sept. 15: Asked if people still use BSD-style dump & restore.
Sept. 15: Asked if there's a way to confine shell users to ~.
Sept. 19: Asked if Cisco certification is worthwhile. (Two follow-ups.)
Sept. 27: Asked about ftp problems getting from a Win32 client to Linux.
Sept. 27: Asked about a client-connectivity problem with Samba.
Sept. 27: Asked about threading v. forking in Linux.
Sept. 28: Asked if there are known Linux-kernel problems with VIA
Oct. 4: Asked about studies of Web/ftp proxies' cost-effectiveness.
Oct. 4: Asked why there are so many Unixes.
Oct. 5: Asked how worthwhile Freshmeat ratings are.
Oct. 6: Asked a rather fuzzy question about Web hosting.
Minh does appear to do nothing _but_ ask idle questions, which tends to
get very tiresome. But they generally look Linux-relevant to me.

Indeed. One of the reasons my reply distribution gets trimmed (by mutt)
to just the list address is to reinforce community-minded behaviour.
