I agree that this is a Good Thing (tm). Not only do we now know what is and
what is not working, bugs are getting a lot more exposure and thus are
triaged faster. i.e. someone on this list can recognise and issue and
confirm it, or try to reproduce and fail. Many subscribers *can* help, and I
think that also is the main reason they joined this list.

So yeah, I think the extra exposure for the bug reports is very good.

good luck,
