I didn't want to muddy the CfC thread, so taking this to a new thread.

I have an additional suggestion for the bug notifications:

I suggest that in addition to sending the new bug notifications to the
list, it would also make sense to send any bug status changes to the list
so people are aware when bugs are closed/invalidated etc. without having to
subscribe to a potentially lengthy discussion.

I think that if/when we create an administrative list, this extra admin
email might be appropriate.
