As someone who has focused primarily on the documentation, I find the deluge
of bug reports on the mailing list a little overwhelming.  And I think it
also increases the signal-to-noise ratio for discussions on the list - it
makes it easier for a discussion to get lost.

keep things this way, but  I'd prefer to not receive bug reports from
