We have a mail list specifically for this. Subscribe to the
bugzilla@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx mail list and you'll see all LX bug events
because we make sure that bugzilla@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx is on the CC list of
all bugs. See www.xaraxtreme.org/community/.

Alternatively, add yourself to the CC list of any bug in Bugzilla that
you have an interest in. Then you'll be emailed whenever someone adds a
comment. If you're the orginal reporter of the bug, or it's assigned to
you, you'll be emailed anyway.

If a discussion relates directly to a bug in Bugzilla, then it makes
sense to use Bugzilla for comments because then, as you say, the
comments are neatly archived with the bug. If not, then use the dev mail
list instead.
