For notification about new plugins that could probably be useful.  But then
it's more useful for users than developers.  So it should at least be moved to
qgis-user.  But for that a RSS feed on plugins.q.o might be better.  Doesn't
the plugin manager also have a opt-in notification mechanism for new plugins?

For the purpose to avoid duplication of plugins it seems quite useless to me.
People intending to write a plugin should be capable to search in the plugin
manager or on plugins.q.o if there is already something similar they can use
instead or base their work on - and if they aren't, they probably didn't manage
to subscribe to qgis-developer either.   And even if they did, they probably
already missed the approval of the plugin and are still doomed to reinvent it.

Is there anyone that actually finds this mails useful?  AFAICT so far there
were only voices that didn't find it useful or just thought it might be useful
to others - but no one said "keep it, I use it".
