Re: JIRA notifications

Hi Wes,

I understand that you want to be up to date with regards to all issues in Arrow. I think for a lot of people that won't be the case. They'd rather opt-in in or watch individual issues.

However, it looks like there is no other way to get notified of newly created issues; unless you're an admin of the project. So the existing setting seems to be fine.

Good point on the governance aspect of informing everyone on the dev list. Frankly, I'm not sure this is an effective way of getting more people to maintain JIRA issues.

going on in all aspects of the project.

I think new issues are relevant to general Arrow development. Developers
need to see bug reports, feature requests, etc so they can actively
participate in the project's governance. Otherwise the work will fall even
more disproportionately on the few of us that actively maintain and
prioritize the issues than it already does.

Of course, people with no interest in the the project issues can filter out
issues with "[jira]" in the title into a separate place in their e-mail.

Do you think it would make sense to send JIRA notifications to a
separate mailing list? Some people just want to casually follow the
mailing list and it requires a filter to delete all the JIRA spam.

I see there is already an "issues" mailing list which receives the JIRA

What do you think?
