I'd subscribe.

I'm currently working on a parser for the GPX format as part of the
GeoTools Project. I'm also interested in learning how to read Garmin's
data format directly from a receiver into OpenJUMP.

I can see your thinking and it sounds good to me.  I haven't been a  
big user of many projects that use GPS components, except QGIS and  
gpsbabel in general.  Plus some custom python scripting.

The only question I have is how many other people you think would be  
interested in using it.  I support the idea in general and would  
volunteer to pursue setting up the list for you (filing a ticket for  
our system group aka SAC is the way to go: http://trac.osgeo.org).
