"Debian development issues" is a rather broad category. Should a travel
report from Debconf be included? I think it should, yet it is not at all
technical. Having a single "Debian development issues" feed is not going
to work particularly well, I think.

I think it's a much better and easier solution to use the structure we
already have: the existing mailing lists. Copy-pasting a web log entry
to an e-mail shouldn't be too much of a bother, I rather think.

(No need to copy me on list replies, I read -devel. Don't tell me about
Mail-Followups-To, it is non-standard and unnecessary, a "list reply"
command works perfectly fine without it.)
