Really? So IDE maintainers have to subscribe before when they want to
discuss ARM&CF issues? Sleep maintainers have to subscribe when they
want to discuss sleep&ARM?

You are offending people by first adding unneccessary & annoying steps
to their workflow, and then calling them "too stupid" if they don't
follow your stupid rules. (Sometimes subscribing takes _weeks_!)

Yes, everyone should just join linux-arm@vger.kernel.org. What is the
_advantage_ of heave heavilly moderated mailing list?
