We don't do that normally but for example my mails regarding the
availability of the RC builds are important for at least 3 lists. And I
know that not all people are subscribed or reading dev. But I know that
people read (are subscribed) to QA and l10n. So how can I reach all
interested parties? For me it's simple I send an email to all lists. The
people who are subscribed to all lists potentially found this annoying
but for me it is more important to reach all.

If you have a good idea how to solve this, I am interested to learn.
