Agreed with jgraham.  I find the current level of noise to be
tolerable (though I'd always like a little more spam filtering), and
the amount of information received is very useful.  The fact that we
have two discussion areas is sorta bad already; this at least ensures
a partial merging of the two channels that is sufficient for me.

public-html-bugzilla@ isn't really acceptable, because it gets *all*
bugmail, not just new bug reports.  I never want to see a batch of 50
"a label changed!" emails again.

A separate mailing list that only received new bugs would be
acceptable, but I've no opinion on whether requiring people to
subscribe to another list is better than just requiring the people who
hate the bugmail to set up a filter.  The effort seems to be similar
in either case.
