I, for one, thought that running archlinux responsibly only committed me
to subscribing to and reading arch-announce and -general. If I need to
read -dev-public too I will, but it'd be good to be explicit about this. 

In my previous e-mail I also raised the point of having a roadmap for upgrades
that require user intervention. I'd like to know if that'd be 
feasible; I think it would be useful.
