I'd be unhappy about not being able to separate cloud planet
notifications from discussion. I'm happy to know about cloud planet (I
didn't before) and can now subscribe to it in (e.g.) Google Reader. I
don't need more noise in my inbox, and I don't want to have to choose
between discussion _and_ notifications or nothing.

If people want email notifications of cloud planet posts, a separate
list would seem more appropriate.

I have no problem with merging the two discussion lists (assuming that
the one I'm not currently subscribed to doesn't get email notification
of tweets).
