Fair enough.

I'm sorry if my earlier emails came across as dismissive of this or any other practical concerns -- not to mention the work of the bug squad. It's really not my intention to try and throw extra work at anyone.

The bug square is responsible for responding to *all* emails to
bug-lilypond.  We keep statistics on whether they fulfill that
responsibility or not.

OK, understood -- bug-lilypond itself is clearly not the right channel via which to transmit this kind of material directly.

But we *want* a bottleneck for that information.  I don't want to
wade through 95% useless messages in order to see the useful 5%.
Given our extremely limited resources for bug handling (resources
which you are not offering to contribute!), I consider losing that
5% to be quite acceptable.

I'd distinguish between a filter and a bottleneck. Of course you want a filter -- but I don't see it as useful to put in place a system that blocks information getting to you unless somebody actually acts.

How's this: if you work on the bug squad for 6 months and still
think that this is a worthwhile project, then we'll talk about it

Perfectly fair.  Let's do it. :-)
