I disagree that python-dev isn't the patches list. People often discuss 
patches here (although much discussion is also in the tracker).

Do you know this for a fact? I'm a core developer, and I don't use 
private email much to discuss patches or other changes. About the
only private mail that I exchange is about the mechanics of the
release process (e.g. agreeing on specific days for a release).
