Frankly, automatically duplicating information (or cross-posting) should
never be the solution.

I'd rather have an edited, weekly summary of UX discussions posted to
-dev: that would be both useful to people who do not follow that site
*and* regularly remember the existence of that site for UX-minded folks.

Yes, it's more work, but instead of something I'd ignore (by setting up
yet another filter), it would be something I would actually enjoy reading.
