yep i find it quite hard to fully keep track of long mailing list discussion for this reason
its very easy for thread to split and comments to be missed. (this one porbaly will be)
which is why i always prefer to do disucssion via gerrit, irc meetings or in person at meetups or
ptg style event with mailing list used to sumerise  options and gather input but not for the main discussion
ideas are bing brain stormed or inially disscused.

i know that i partly down to the workflow i am use to and partly down to my own abiliy follow mailing list but
i think mailing list only activties are very easy to miss and hard to engage with in many cases although not all.
