I'm finding that github seems to silently discard e-mails.  The mailing list is 
set up to automatically accept posts originating from github's notification 
sender addresses.  This works; any pull requests will result in a message to 
the mailing list, but any e-mails sent back to github seem not to show up in 
the pull request comments.

The intention was to allow github users to interact solely via the pull 
request comment section, but that can't work if github is going to just 
silently discard e-mails.

Unless github fixes this, it's going to remain the case that pull requests are 
used only to generate an initial mail to the list.
