I'm subscribed to a bunch of mailings list, for example
freebsd-multimedia@ and freebsd-ports@, to ask there from time a
question or to follow discussion on topics I'm interested in. And this
is exactly for what the mailing-lists are designed for, if you check in
the mailman server their purpose:

About freebsd-ports

Discussions concerning FreeBSD's "ports collection" (/usr/ports),
proposed ports, modifications to ports collection infrastructure and general
coordination efforts.

About freebsd-multimedia

This is a forum about multimedia applications using FreeBSD.

Discussion center around multimedia applications, their installation,
their development and their support within FreeBSD

There is nothing written about "... and for Cc issues from bugzilla".

What I do not like and do not understand why this was introduced, that
the issue tracker bugzilla copies comments etc. in the issues to the
mailing-list and spams the lists with this (an example is below). This
way I get every day some hundred mails.

Why is this intention? Can it be changed? To whom I should direct this

Subject: [Bug 247873] multimedia/ffmpeg: SVT patches are broken at fetch


--- Comment #6 from Jan Beich <jbeich at FreeBSD.org> ---
Cannot be fixed (without a lot of churn) yet because SVT-VP9 upstream
introduced an incompatible change *before* fixing compatibility with SVT-AV1
v0.8.4. Unfortunately, after bug 246789 it's not possible to sacrifice only
SVTVP9 option.
