The commit diffs are really important for every developer to see, so that's why I feel it's needed to have them on etoys-dev directly (even though there were a few objections IIRC).

Many of the bug notifications are more noise than information - e.g. when priorities are changed, bugs are resolved/closed (which will have a commit message too), etc. So having that be opt-in on a separate list seemed like a good compromise.

On etoys-dev there are close to 200 subscribers (talk about silent majority), etoys-notify more like 20.  I'm personally fine with the current arrangement. But if others agree we need more visibility of bug tracker activity, we can change it pretty easily :)
