Well, yes, but the volume on the combined -dev and -commits mailing list
is way less than -users. I split all three into different folders, I
don't find it all that hard to keep up. I usually end up deleting most
of what isn't of interest to me anyway, so I only track what is
important to me. I read all the commits, just to see what's been added,
and I re-compile my systems probably once a week or so. Although today
was more like 6 times (I kept just missing Greg's commit messages... :) )
Anyway, if people want to use something OTHER than the release, they
need to pay attention to what's going on, including with -fixes.
I'm sure we could do this all day, people will still get it wrong. I do
it, more often than not...
