ARGH! I had no idea it was so easy to set up a bridge between forum and
mailing lists.

I'm cc:ing -devel-discuss to this because it seems to me that having a
bridge to that list from the forum would save a whole lot of effort on
the part of those Forum Ambassadors. Coincidentally, I wrote this on the
bottom of the other day.

Also, I'd be very interested in one for -doc.

In fact, I'm struggling to think of a single mailing list which wouldn't
benefit from forum input in this way.
