... it just makes it impossible to have technical discussions with people
not subscribed cc'ed to the list. Also users cannot send bug reports
without subscribing, which I would consider unfortunate.

Wouldn't it be better to consider using one of the spam blackhole services
and opening the list up, and tolerate the small rest that slips through
in the name of user friendlyness and developer efficiency?

subscribe to a list first just to send bug reports)
