4. do a + b + post summaries to mailman-developers

I don't mind getting the SF messages, even on those "my poor laptop's on
dialup" days, but to be honest, they get procmailed to another folder and I
tend to forget about them most of the time, so they're not really serving
their purpose.  

I *really* like the idea of this list getting summaries as suggested in the
original mail because I know I'd take the time to scan a summary.  (After
all, I scan the summary of stuff caught in my spam filter every day, and
it's way less interesting.) Sure, plenty of people will ignore it, but at
least the volume won't be so large that it'll drive people and discussions
away, and it just might better serve the original purpose of having all the
SF stuff send to this list.
