you don't have to know that issues in the tracker are forwarded to
pd-dev, in order to submit issues.

if you are using the tracker to send emails to pd-dev without having to
be subscribed, then you are obviously trying to tweak rules of pd-dev.
if you try to tweak the rules, then you should probably know them.

why do you insist in having explicit knowledge about the rules?

i keep submitting bugs and patches to other projects at sourceforge, and
i couldn't care less whether these tickets are automatically forwarded
to some email address or not.
i don't know the tracker rules of these projects. but i see that there
_is_ a tracker, and hope that someone will eventually read it (when they
find time).
that's it.

(i find that trackers that contain 5 or less items are usually worthless
(except for very young projects), as they seem to be not used at all but
have been created automatically and nobody turned them off; with
projects that have many issues, and many of them closed, i usually
assume that the tracker is in active use and eventually somebody
responsible will have a look at my issue)
