So, should we now get all phabricator mail at, say, kimageshop@xxxxxxx, or 
should we create a second mailing list, say krita-phab@xxxxxxx? I do want to 
receive mail for everything krita-related that happens on phabricator!

But what if that's what a project really wants?

I know. Most newcomers don't and do not specify any reviewer, so review 
requests often fall between the cracks.

I discovered today that I did not have a subscription to this list and that 
there are no archives, so I've missed all discussions, if there have been any. 
I would have expected the discussion to happen on kde-community, but maybe we 
just have too many mailing lists.
