I agree, when big patches are involved, for some reasonable definition of "big".

I think Alex McLintock's suggestion is best - we have 2 lists, one for users and
the existing one for developers only. Smaller patches, I think, should still go
to the fop-dev list; my reasoning here is that committers are not necessarily in
a position to commit instantly or even in a couple of days. If it's on a list
then at least individual developers can apply it themselves right away if they
wish. We also have better history, archiving support, visibility and
non-repudiation if it goes to a list vice going to a number of personal email

What's a reasonable value for "big"? More than 5K or 10K, perhaps. I get a fair
amount of email, and judging by that 5-10K emails are not unreasonable.

If the patches are quite large, maybe the best thing to do is to notify the
fop-dev list, and wait for a committer to claim the patch; then it can actually
be sent directly to that one person.
