More to the point I was trying to make, those of us who do (spend a 
great deal of our own time trying to) keep up with the -dev and -commits 
lists don't necessarily understand why we should spend a great deal of 
our time posting answers to questions that were answered on those lists 
just to save someone else from having to spend his/her time reading the 
lists.  (Why should my free time be less valuable than someone else's.)

But, sometimes someone will answer the question, anyway.

Now, if it's someone who generally does keep up, but may have missed 
something, that's a whole other situation.  If it's someone who's just 
starting with Myth and who has subscribed to the lists and who is 
starting to read them, that's another situation.  Unfortunately, though, 
it's not always easy to tell if this is the case, so I tend to include 
the reminder to read those lists regardless.  That way, the reminder is 
there--if not for the OP--for others reading the lists/archives.
