Often at Alioth, teams have one list for general development discussions 
(also being used for the Maintainer: field in packages), and a separate 
one for VCS commits - which most but (as is clear here) not all would 
then subscribe to as well.

I like this split.  But as mentioned recently already, I am relatively 
new here, so perhaps there are sane reasons for not doing this too?
