[drupal-devel] Improvements abandoned? (was: bug squashing session)

What happened to having the bug reports and updates getting mailed to
this mailing list?  That seemed to work.  I posted three bug fix
patches and filed two bug reports yesterday but I feel like they are
left in a black hole.  That's not a feeling you want to leave folks
with after they contributed several hours of their time.

I know you can easily see the list at
 But you know the saying, "out of sight, out of mind."

Maybe getting bug reports sent to this mailing list again would help
make things along.
