No, no, I was referring to "reset &send user pass" and "Wordpress Plugin 
Repository not approving a plugin" because they've been started in the 
last day or two, but also the list as a whole.

I'm not sure if Gmail recognizes In-Reply-To for threading (might be a 
combination of that and their own algorithm), but Thunderbird sure does. 
And it's quite disorienting when you're following along in a thread 
and---BAM!---the subject has changed to something else all of a sudden.
