I believe it is close to the (a) choice. What would be useful is a
mechanism that brings the developer mail on policy discussions that
affect their packages. In other words it may be useful to use
<package>@packages.debian.org for more than announcements or bring the
discussion back to debian-devel. Also, some maintainers may prefer a
mechanism that would allow them to remove the package from the thread if
the deam it irrelavent.
