Even if you take the extra effort and go through a sign up/off for every
single bug you want to report, this doesn't really work because you
might miss replies in between the signed-up periods, and while you are

unrelated to your problem.

I recall other projects implementing an open-mailing-list principle
(posting without subscription), and I think it works great.
