Subject Re: Non-discussion emails

Committers obviously need to have oversight of everything - wiki, bugs, commits and posted
messages, but thats a limited number of us and easy to ensure that we're fully subscribed
up to everything.

For other community members Jive is excellent and I think this is a great addition to support
community participation. People who don't want to be permanently subscribed and receieve all
the emails can pop in and out posting on an adhoc basis.

I like both these ideas +1 from me.
