It depends. For tickets I submitted or made patches for, I'd also like to
get those milestone or version change notifications. And other people might
also want them under different circumstances.

The only option that will please all people is (if Lloyd (or anybody else
doing mass trac triage) is willing) to notify people in advance, so they can
temporarily switch to digest mode if they don't want to get a large amount
of trac mails.

But the default should definitely be: mail everything, because that's what
the list is for.
