FWIW, Jira is used to provide exactly this context.  I suspect lots more 
people monitor Jira discussions than ever download and apply patches. 
We should not optimize patch application (code) at the expense of 
communication (community).

The way folks deal with this on Hadoop is with mail filters and Jira 
watches, so that they see all new issue creations in Jira, but only 
issue updates for issues that they've decided to watch.  We should 
document a best-practice for this.
