And what prevents you from subscribing to emacs-pretest-bug?  It's a
public list, AFAIK.

No.  emacs-devel is for _discussions_about_ Emacs development, while
emacs-pretest-bug is for reporting bugs and related discussions, and
only for that.  Therefore, people who read emacs-pretest-bug should be
those who are interested in working on fixing bugs, not simply have
some interest in Emacs development.

The fact that some people report bugs on emacs-devel IMHO means
nothing except that those people wrote to the wrong address.  But
since all those who subscribe to emacs-pretest-bug also read
emacs-devel, we don't usually tell such people to take the thread to
