debian-devel doesn't exist to get information. It exists to discuss any
technical issues surounding debian. And that can be anything ranging
from archive management to development strategies to implementing
acceptable defaults.

If a thread doesn't interest you, don't read it. If you can't handle the 
the volume of the list, put it in a seperate folder, read it from a
nntp-server, read it from a mail archive or don't read it at all.
Amazingly simple strategies, but very effective.
