FWIW, I currently do that by just reading the headers (of the thread
starters) of the tb-planning posts. That's why I don't consider
tb-planning to be "noisy".

FWIW, that doesn't work for me, it costs way too much time. planet has a
hundred contributors posting all kinds of stuff, and agenda has what
each person did each week, I don't need to know that.
I just want to know about important Thunderbird project decisions,
before you made up your mind, and to be able to get involved, if I think
I can give input. I think all important (not day-to-day) decisions
should be discussed on tb-planning first. Project leads may sometimes
veto and not take the majority opinion here, but not even consulting us
is stating that we're irrelevant.

Sounds like a good idea! I'd call it tb-dev-announce, though.
tb-announce should be targetted at end-users and handled by Rafael and
show the new features in a new release.
