There is also a good reason not to. Let's take the promiment example of
LKML, where you do not have to be subscribed. So you have to be Cc'ed or
To'ed somehow. Second case LKML: People throw all their list mails into
one folder (the unimportant stuff) and get a direct reply for threads
they have taken part in. That's why your patch is often ignored when
just submitted to lkml without any persons directly cc'ed.

To unsubscribe, e-mail: opensuse+unsubscribe@xxxxxxxxxxxx
For additional commands, e-mail: opensuse+help@xxxxxxxxxxxx
