I agree that threading and filtering (even ad-hoc whilst reading your email) would solve this. Mailing lists have been providing a common-baselime information exchange forum for a very long time, including well before web forums became popular or ubiquitous.

The mail traffic on any given list will wax and wane based on the demands of the time, if you unsubscribe because this list is seeing actual activity, "so long" I guess.

I dont read everything posted here, nor do I feel the need to. Don't set yourself up to fail unnecessarily.
You needn't be part of every conversation to be part of the community.

Issues are better in an online forum where you can see all the entries for an issue in one page. At most, the mailing list should announce the creation of an issue. We could then subscribe or not to each issue in the forum.

There is just one mail telling me there is an update, even if there are 10 updates before I choose to visit the issue. This means I can concentrate on issues where I can contribute.
