Subject: Where to post? Too many options?

Where to post? Too many options?

From: <postmaster_at_diffenbach.org>

Where should I post, to the forum or to the mailing list?

I've been posting to the rockbox-dev list with any general dev or
build questions.

Lately, I realized there's an online forum.

Where should we be posting?

I prefer the lists, mostly because I only need to monitor two: rockbox
and rock-dev; I just look at what's new in my inbox and read any with
interesting-to-me subjects.

With the forum, there are several sub-fora. Is there a convenient way
to see all new forum post, regardless of the sub-forum posted to?

Having multiple options are great, but I'm worried with mailing list,
fora, and irc, one risks either annoying people by posting the same
thing multiple places, or having my posts never seen by users of the
modalities I don't post to.

On a related issue, it would be nice to get email notification of new
patch-tracker topics (there's probably a setting for this that I need
to figure out).

And tailored notification of CVS modifications -- e.g., right now
button.* and lcd*.* are of interest to me, but in the future other
things will be my current focus -- would be nice.

And wiki mod notification would be nice too.

I'm rambling, but my point is, we're seeing a localized "explosion" of
modalities and information, and I'd like some way to get something
like an RSS feed or (better) email notification.

This is probably a local symptom of a generalized info glut requiring
a generalized solution, and no doubt the guy to come up with an answer
  will make a fortune. Is there a specific answer for rockbox, or a
general answer?
