     I think the solution is to do what other popular unix programs do for
development.  They have three mailing lists.  One is the development list,
which has the purpose of what we are doing now.  The next is the announce
list, which gets a lot less traffic and only has notes on announcements
from people about things relating to the product.  The third is the digest
list, which once a day compiles all the messages sent to the development
list for that day, bunches them up into one tidy neat message, and then
sends that out.

     Most of us on this list probably don't care about just being on an
announce list (at least this is my guess), but many might prefer a digest
if the mail is getting to be too much to keep track of.  I just use
procmail to filter my mail, myself, but some people may not have that
