Subject Re: [VOTE] Subscribe dev@ to Github Activities
Date Wed, 18 Jul 2018 12:51:21 GMT

trying to solve here?

    seems more like a strategy (whether intentional or on accident) to *not*
    have design discussions on dev by flooding it with noise and then later
    claim it was discussed, even though you would have to sift through
    thousands of emails to find it.
