I actually agree those messages are important, and I do want them in my
inbox. But I would like conversations to stand out, because I sometime
miss them drowned in the notifications. Also, I almost never need to
search the notifications after a few days, while I might go back to some
old discussion, so the retention doesn't have to be the same.

It's much easier to setup a filter for this if it's a different mailing
list (or in this case, one notification for the go-team on the tracker,
and a mailing list.

I won't push on this too much, if there's no consensus I'll manage.

Admittedly my e-mail client (thunderbird) sucks, as I can't define this
in a single filter like <many source addresses> AND <list-id>. One of
this days I need to setup filters on the server…
