I subscribe to many eclipse mailing lists. This means I get a lot of email that’s sorted by various filters so my inbox doesn’t explode with all the traffic.
However, there are some Eclipse projects that I’m interested in, but not going to participate actively on the mailing list. This reminds me of the pig and chicken analogy. I’m somewhat involved in the other projects, but I’m committed to others. From implementing Scrum
Luckily, each eclipse.org mailing list also has a RSS feed.
For instance, this time of the year, it’s interesting to watch the EclipseCon Program Committee feed. Lots of discussions regarding which talks will get the final +1 for the 2010 program.
Or you may have an interest in what’s happening in e4, but don’t want all the email that this very active project generates.
