Can Trac message the list? Was Re: [wp-hackers] Any way to bypass $wp->query_posts()?

Trac emails updates the wp-trac list. You can subscribe to that one just
like this one. There is a feature on trac where you can check a box to
be CCed on a specific ticket. That's a great idea, in principle, except
that it is impossible to store an email address into your trac user
account profile, so it cannot cc you. There is at least one trac ticket
about fixing this issue with the trac. It has been open for quite some
time and I haven't seen any progress on it.

This is a very valid point. Trac is not being used for discussions about
changes, and although its arguable that we should all be following Trac
tickets, in practise this is not really happening.

I'm not that familiar with Trac functions but wonder if there is a way
it to message this list? If not, then perhaps anyone submitting a ticket
could post to the list, with a link to the ticket, asking for feedback.
Either way, its important that we post any suggested changes/pros/cons
the ticket rather than here because there are some who use Trac but
wade through the myriad of discussions that take place on this list
(many of
which are not suitable for core anyway).

Improved communication and involvement with Trac tickets seems like a
no-brainer to me.
