It's the experience I've made by talking to multiple packagers in private
mail after pointing them to a message in the list archives.

[As might be known, a few of us do reply to fedora-extras-commits diffs
occasionally and then find out that the packagers don't see the messages
sent to fedora-extras-list (and, btw, are not subscribed to
fedora-extras-commits list either).]

Maybe it changes slowly and they come back after the bugzilla "spam" has
been moved to a separate list. But since even the number of build reports
and problem reports (repoclosure, upgradepaths) has been criticised, that
is evidence that there are more packagers who are not interested in
general content on fedora-extras-list.
