I was thinking about this earlier. I wondered if it might even be
worth it just to CC the authors of all topics whose status has changed
since the last what's cooking, to make sure that they see updates
pertinent to them. I know that I at least have filters which catch
emails which CC me and promote them to my inbox, so I would see them
more readily.

My normal mode of operation is that when I have a patch in I check all
the "What's cooking" messages as if I was F5-ing a webpage, to follow
its status. Were I CCd on the message, I would be updated whenever the
mail was sent, which I would appreciate. This also has the nice side
effect of updating patch authors who are not subscribed to the list.

On the other hand, its possible some people would find that this
generated lots of noise, and it might also cause unrelated replies to
the "What's Cooking" message to CC all authors.
