And the original plan, which we will hopefully implement, is to split
the *-changes into several different mailing lists:

debian-changes               for stable updates, as currently
debian-devel-source-changes  for any source uploads (.orig.tar.gz or .diff.gz)
debian-devel-<arch>-changes  for binary (.deb) uploads

A binary upload to Architecture: all will be announced to all of the
architecture-specific lists.

None of the new lists will inherit the subscribers from any of the
current lists, and this will mean that the duplicated emails are
irrelevant, as the old debian-devel-changes will simply be shut down.
