Just a general request: I think it would be nicer for emails to contain 
*links* to large images rather than include them inline.

A copy of every single pixel in an attached image is send through the 
internet to every person subscribed to the dev list, and they can be 
scattered around the world from Iceland to New Zealand. It's chewing up 
a lot of bandwidth...and for some people that may not be free or fast. 
In addition, the sites that archive these lists are either storing 
copies of the images (waste) or are not (in which case the archived 
emails are not useful).

Every apache committer has an account on that can be 
used to store stuff like this on. Or images could be put on the myfaces
