I think calling it 'spamming the list' is a very strong statement. And I
certainly don't feel that way. While I agree the requests are not
specifically for the 'bzr' project, I think they are for *very* related
And we have a long history of mentioning and discussing changes to any
plugins, extensions, etc to bzr on this mailing list.
Theoretically we could have a separate 'bzr-plugins' mailing list, or
even a 'bzr-gtk' mailing list. But I don't really think that is warranted.
I can see that [bzr-gtk][merge] can be better, and for BB it is easiest
to collapse this to something like [bzr-gtk:MERGE].
But I really don't consider it spamming a mailing list to post messages
that are completely relevant on that list.
