[OpenJDK 2D-Dev] New list for getting 2d bug update notifiications

I have created a new list :

This list distributes email notification of all updates
to 2d-dev related bugs made in Sun's bug database.

This means "java/classes_2d" and "java/imageio" bugs
according to the database's classification hierarchy.

I expect this will address some questions and give
a more dynamic view into what is happening.

The email notifications originate from Sun's bug database
and as such I have no control over their format or content,
and its not the kind of thing that can be changed easily,
if at all.

2d-bugupdates is a one way list. You cannot post to it.
If you try it'll get discarded. But if you have a question or
comment on an bug update notification, you'll find that
the reply-to is set to point to 2d-dev at openjdk.java.net.

Some might ask why not just send posts directly to that
list. There are two reasons. First, not everyone will
want to see all these posts, so a separate list allows
people to choose. Secondly, because of the way the
notifications come from the bug database it needs to
be administered and configured separately.
