The reviews aren't only usefull for those who do reviews, but also for
those who learn to review. If everybody is subscribed to the review list
it helps learning to review.

Oh, I hadn't understood something. fedora-maintainers is for extras and
core packagers. And some core packagers may be uninterested in extras.

Ok, so there is some overlap between fedora-extras-list, fedora-maintainers
and fedora-devel, but maybe it is unavoidable. fedora-extras-list is
for those interested in extras, fedora-devel for those interested in core
and fedora-maintainers for those interested in both, but then it isn't a
surprise that it is mostly silent. It is even strange that there is more
than annoucements.

Anyway if every extra contributor should be subscribed to that list,
it should be said there:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/Contributors#head-53aea28748f7f8172082faefbad5b3f9788c4236

and the mailing list should appear here:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Communicate#head-e515a6e891efe6e2f1c8faa0434f8b5422510668

Still we are volunteer, so it is not a problem if it isn't possible to
read everything. But it is a community project, so there are 
discussions about policy, and disagreements. My personal opinion is 
that things are kept constructive most of the time, but I may be biased, 
as I participate to the noise...
