That would be a useful refinement. Unfortunately, I don't have 
first-hand experience of using Gmane because our Mediawiki site 
will "real soon" be able to send an email alert whenever a
watched page changes. Given a small amount of discipline, users 
will edit their comments on a separate discussion page for each
"thread", so volunteers can then summarise the whole into a 
readable article. That's the theory anyway, the hard part is 
developing the discipline.
