Yes, agreed. Fewer sources of truth/activity are better!

Here's some constructive criticism.

I've been trying to follow development conversations in JIRA and Review
Board, and I'm finding the mailing list useless for this purpose. I end
up just using the mailing list, JIRA, and Review Board separately anyway.

For example: I can easily see what's going on in a Review Board review
or a JIRA issue because of the handy UI. Here's a review with lots of
activity: . Looks great there. I can
pick out the chronology, participants, and see the commented diffs!
That's a pretty cool tool.

A notification from review 9408 on the mailing list is much less
helpful. Here's one of the actions out of context: . That email by itself adds little except an
audit trail. It crowds out (IMHO) more important emails. I wouldn't
reply directly to it. I really have to go back to Review Board to do
anything useful with that notification.

Maybe the problem is just that I'm trying to browse the archives, and
mod_mbox is not my favorite mailing list archive browser. I'll try email
filtering before any more whinging.

If you're still feeling thumbs-down after reading the above, I'll
probably withdraw my proposal. This may just be me getting used to Mesos

I also found ... Andrew maybe got put off by
the notification emails too. Again, might just be an issue for new Mesos
