After having been subscribed to debian-bugs-dist and debian-devel-changes
for a while, I really think it is quite a useful list.

debian-bugs-dist is much easier to read than trying to search through
the bugs list through bugs.debian.org (for me), and 
debian-devel-changes is much useful in catching signs of some packages 
which potentially will break other packages.

If a potential new maintainer is bitching/complaining/suggesting 
whatever in debian-devel, I would suggest reading the two lists,
and do something.

Reading the two lists, it would be obvious that there is a *LOT* to
