Here are some more issues:

* Spirit has many maintainers. The proper recipient would be the
   spirit-devel list (spirit-devel -at-

* I see that I can simply set up a thunderbird filter to forward to
   that address when I receive a Trac ticket email. Alas, there's
   no reliable way to detect a Trac ticket message. The title:
   [Boost C++ Libraries]... is non-descriptive enough. Rene is
   looking for way to add the library name to the email title.
   If all goes well, this trick should do it. But it's useful for
   other purposes as well (e.g. organizing your inbox).

* Some libraries have multiple maintainers. For example, Fusion
   is maintained by Dan Marsden, Tobias and me. Can a certain
   set of maintainer have their own identity on the maintainer list
   and can Trac be setup to fire emails to all maintainers of a
   specific group?
