I was thinking more of outsiders trying to track down issues (who may be 
using older Mesa versions, and wanting both to ask about bisected 
commit, and find out whether there's a fix for given issue in upstream).

Longer list of people is useful in case Mesa driver team has been 
changing in intervening years.

But this is very much a corner-case concern.
