that's what i'm doing right now, i'm subscribed to near all the mageia list...

anyway, this is not a personal complain, keep it in mind; i'm speaking about 
this only because happened to me, but i think out there is plenty of ideas 
that will not be implemented in mageia  because only ML followers knew this...

i'm not complaining about MY proposals, i'm complaining about the MISSING blog 
post that should notice the people ideas page was up and available until xx 
date. this not happened.  why a normal user should follow all the mailing 
lists if he can't or doesn't want to partecipate? why shouldn't we accept his 
ideas only because he isn't involved in the team? don't  you want to implement 
his interesting feature only for revenge about his missing in the ML?
