Personally, I'd be more likely to see the wnpp mails if they weren't
in amongst the rest of devel. I'm not sure whether or not I'd stop
reading devel again if that happened.
In general, I suspect the above is true and it would reduce the
number of people reading the wnpp mails. What proportion of devel
is wnpp email? How frequently are they given as a reason by people
who don't read devel?
Hope that helps,
