Cool. Also the Intrepid packages in ~intel-gfx-testing should be fine.
It seems like you maybe removed them from x-updates together with the
broken Hardy packages, do you only want to offer Jaunty stuff?

Yes, we talked a bit on #ubuntu-x last night. Looking forward to
seeing his dkms packages.

Yes, I was once member for a short while until I realised the bug mail
flood. I have since set up some filtering (as far as I can with Gmail)
so I can handle it better. Since I don't want to waste my time on
proprietary stuff, it was an issue for me to get bug reports related
to the closed drivers. Also, since I always subscribe to bug reports
that interests me and I have time to follow up, it will not make sense
for me to get the rest of the x-swat bug mail, which I per definition
do not have time to read :) In addition, I am a "bug-contact" (or
whatever they call it now) for some specific packages.

An opt-in mailing list sounds best for me. Or have different teams
being member of others, like a "x-swat-proprietary" being member of
"x-swat" etc.
