Should we provide a link to subscribe to the mailing lists from the installer?  Such as if
they pick the dev branch or nightly's ?

That would certainly help.

Why not just not log them in the installers log?

We've had 20,000+ installs of the SDK via the installer - we don't have anywhere near that
many people on the mailing lists. I think a little caution is prudent here. the installer
is the first thing a user will use when trying to installer the SDK.
