I'm surprised by this, FWIW. I think skimming the commits is a good way
to get an idea of what's going on, while discussions between developers
tend to be focussed on particular obscure points (e.g. discussing
correctness of a murky corner in the intersection between 2 new type
system extensions, or discussing the way PIC is handled on OSX/PowerPC)
which I wouldn't have thought were of much interest to any party not
involved in the discussion and familiar with the details.

Anyway, I'm not really too fussed about what mailing lists we have. I'll
just subscribe to them all anyway  :-)
