Yeah, actually, there's a thing there... in order for those automated
posts to work, we'd have to either enable starting threads by email (see
previous on fear of spam) or figure out some way to make them all be replies
to a single thread. I hadn't really deeply considered that.

I'm not sure about mixing announcements and discussion, and really having
tickets go to the list (either here or discourse) risks fragmenting the
conversation -- I don't have a good solution.

Yeah. We just added subcategories, because that was definitely necessary.
