I use Thunderbird as MUA. It allow filtering message by many condition.
For example if I interesting in Bash or Emacs I make filter that check
Subject for entry 'bash' or 'emacs' keyword
and STAR this letter in folder to get more attention and
copy to 'Important' folder as I always chech this directory.
So if someone properly report issue/news I get attention.
For search for already reported issue I use GMANE:
or in google: site:http://blog.gmane.org/gmane.os.cygwin KEYWORD
So with mail list you can be NOTIFIED in realtime and
effectively SEARCH for already reported issue.
