... and you'll soon find that iriver users and iaudio x5 users also have user
forums elsewhere where they post and discuss rockbox-related subjects as well!

Then use the lists. I personally prefer the lists too.

Subscribe to the rockbox-sf mailing list, it gets mailed on all patch tracker
changes and submissions:

I would suggest you subscribe to rockbox-cvs and filter the mails on the
subject to show you the ones you are interested in:

I believe it is possible with some plugin to twiki, but so far we haven't
tried anything like that.

I expect the explosion to continue even more as the amount of both users and
developers are still increasing. We've surpassed the point in which most of
the core devs could keep up with most of all public discussions that concerned
Rockbox. This is the natural development of a project growing big.
