Oh well... there are people interested:

Name                         Subscribers

debian-all-changes              300
debian-alpha-changes             50
debian-arm-changes               50
debian-hurd-i386-changes[8]     100
debian-i386-changes             170
debian-m68k-changes              25
debian-sparc-changes             40
debian-devel-alpha-changes       30
debian-devel-arm-changes         30
debian-devel-hurd-i386-changes  130
debian-devel-i386-changes       190
debian-devel-powerpc-changes     60

Remember that a lot of people were/are subscribed to debian-changes/debian-devel-changes
waiting for all the .changes files being sent there so they notice new packages.
