That's exactly what I think when I open my mailbox. I might not be the
only one who subscribed to this list without being involved in the
project and who just need informations about how to hack around it.

This mailing list is very active and it's quite difficult for someone
who is not working in the deeps of the project to watch it. The solution
could be to create a parallel mailing list. But some users may also
think that a forum is more convenient than a mailing list.
