I actually haven't participated (or even subscribed to any!) in any of
the IETF mailing lists to useful detail, although I do read the archives
from time to time. Most of the active working groups are on topics that
I'm not particularly qualified to comment on (IMAP, DMARC, DANE, e.g.),
although I do follow them from time to time to keep abreast of changes.
Come to think of it, I did sign up for a W3C interest group on
HTML-in-email, but that group has been moribund for a year (and it
doesn't bode well that some of the members expressed surprise at basic
terminology like "MUA").
