I have felt that the traffic on this list has been relatively light.
Most threads are concerning discussion type issues. There have only
been a few raised bugs.

I have no problem resisting to send bugs, but I thought that this
would be a list for discussion on such issues.

clipped from: https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-devel-discuss
# Sharing of experiences with the current development branch of Ubuntu
# Technical questions about new features in the development branch
# Ideas and suggestions about future development of Ubuntu
# Point of contact for Ubuntu users to reach Ubuntu developers
# Open to all to subscribe, posting moderated for non-subscribers

It seems to me that if users, developers and testers that are
following this list care about a particular issue or bug they can
raise it here. If it generates no discussion and others simply ignore,
then it is probably not a big issue.

I raised this one in particular only because I wanted to try to find
others to test, since it was a special case requiring a ACM account.

Also, the fact that the release is close, to me means that any major
bugs should pass by more eyes and get more attention. To me it seems
as though that is what an open source community is for. Like I said,
if the consensus is not to raise such issues on this list, then I will
refrain. Just let me know.
