That sounds like your MUA deficiency. Looking up previous emails is
critical, even when the established email etiquette is to quote previous
messages. Sometimes, too much context is lost in the quote.
?? You mean I must keep_all_  the emails I receive forever?

What I do is file (a.k.a. "archive") the emails I want to keep, for
whatever reasons, and delete all the rest.  How is that a
"deficiency", let alone one of my MUA?  My MUA simply does what I tell
it to do.

Both Debbugs and other newer bug trackers keep the history of older comments in their database.

So it's not really an issue of someone being forced to keep email archives forever: we can read the older threads on the web too.

The problem you are discussing it the difference between flat and threaded email conversations' display. Neither is objectively better than the other (only better for particular workflows), so this can create a tension.

I wonder how projects like Mesa (that previously used an email-only workflow but now use Gitlab too) went about resolving that.
