I agree with Greg.  The purpose of a development list is to discuss
development.  Having the bug tracker sending emails is a good idea, but only
if it's opt-in (and the easiest way to do that is to have a separate list).
If a genuine developer is unwilling to opt-in to a bug tracking mailing list
then I think it suggests they are not serious enough about it (while a lot
of those on this list are on it just to see how SWORD is being used and what
other Bible software developers are doing).
