regarding itT threads, as part of your account settings you can configure it
to automatically subscribe to threads you post to.
Therefore you get a mail when someone replies I keep ontop of the important
ones that way.

I have these mailing lists dribbling in but tend to keep out of the
IRC ebbs and flows as it always has, and I have an active set of keywords to
keep me informed, but I don't tend to read scrollback unless its something

The wiki and bugzilla are a bit more specific and I don't tend to monitor
pages there, I always get lost in the discussions and think they are used a
bit too much for important stuff that a proper mailing list or forum thread
would be better, I'm a huge fan of the comments and discussion system
slashdot uses and feel something similar would be a benefit to important

thats my £0.02
