Hi Mike,

During today's PointerEvents WG call [1], we talked about ways people 
can receive automaticnotifications ofthe group's Bugzilla bug changes. 
It appears the main options are:

1. Configure Bugzilla such that every change is automatically sent to 
the group's primary list (public-pointer-events). Disadvantage is extra 
"noise" for some subscribers.

2. Create a new list(e.g. public-pointer-events-bugs) and have Bugzilla 
automatically notify this new list of every change.

3. Determine who wants to be notified of every change and configure 
Bugzilla such that those people are automatically added to the Cc list 
when a New bug is created, thus those people will be notified of 
everychange.

4. When a New bug announcement is sent to our main list, if someone 
wants to track all changes for that specific bug, they just add 
themselves to the bug's Cc list.

Are there any other good options? What do you recommend?

All - if you have a  preference for one of the above (or some 
combination), please speak up.

My inclination is to create a new list as described in #2 above(this 
would also cover #3 above) and #4 "just works" as Bugzilla is configured 
now.

-Thanks, Art
