But, frankly, I think it's a bad idea to subscribe to python-bugs-list for announcements. The whole point here is that there is simply too much going on in python development for anyone to reasonably keep track of at a low level. Guido himself has complained on numerous occasions of being too busy to monitor things closely. A better model is to subscribe to new-bugs-announce and selectively pay attention to the bugs which are interesting to you; and, when a discussion you're involved in gets interesting and becomes of more general interest, raise it on python-dev.
Another option: if you are more comfortable with managing information flow via usenet newsgroups than via email lists, gmane.org provides mail-to-nntp gateways and archiving of most of the major python mailing lists, including this one, the bugs list, and code checkins. It also supports posting via your news reader, rss feeds, searching, and several web interfaces.
