Firstly, my apologies for the current delay in summaries, which  
exacerbates this problem (although others are right when they say  
that things sometimes happen too fast even for on-time summaries).

A while back there was talk about a mailing list for PEP changes and  
the solution was instead to use the "topic" feature of mailman,  
essentially creating a subset-mailing-list.  Would something like  
this be feasible for this?  (I don't really know enough how how the  
topic feature can be used to know if it is workable or not).

I presume that this would still need some sort of action from the  
poster (e.g. including a tag somewhere), but it would probably be  
easier for people to remember to do that than cross-post to another  
list entirely.
