The Linux(*) development list goes under the name lkml (Linux Kernel Mailing List)

(*) I take Linux to mean the kernel and GNU/Linux to mean the OS. Debian (and of course RMS/FSF) agrees with me

If you mean general (i.e. not kernel-only) development mailing lists, I wouldn't know. Try searching for `programming forums'.

I extend mailing lists to also include forums, IRC and other conventional internet-based communication forms.

union(google('linux forum', 'linux help', 'linux mailing lists')):
#assume `www.' and `.com' if none given
linuxforums.org
linuxquestions.org
linuxhelp.net
linuxforum
linuxselfhelp
justlinux

This is *without* all the distro-specific channels and the (GNU/)LUGs.

Finding out which is biggest or best is left as an exercise for the reader...
